Florida Dems Early Voting Nearly 2 to 1 over Republicans – But McCain Leads!

A report yesterday from Florida Today says that Democrats are beaming that their party is outperforming the Republicans in early voting. Numbers released Wednesday show that registered Democrats voting outnumber Republicans 54% to 30% among the 1.4 million voters who have gone to the polls early.

The only problem with that rosy scenario is that, according to a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll, Sen. John McCain is leading Sen. Barack Obama 49 to 45 among those Floridians who have already voted.

Being somewhat of a contrarian, I would have been more surpised if this had not been the case.

Adding to Democrat worries,  Republicans continued to show a traditional strength, leading 50 percent to the Democrats’ 30 percent in the 1.2 million absentee ballots already returned.

I suspect this news snippet of early voting does not bode well for the Obama campaign. What if ACORN registered voters Bugs Bunny, A. Hitler, and the Dallas Cowboys also vote for McCain?
