Early Voting Results In Key Battleground States Appear To Favor Donald Trump

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

vote-button-public-domainIf you want Donald Trump to win the election, then you have got to be encouraged by what you are seeing so far.  Early voting has already been going on in a number of the most important battleground states, and up to this point the numbers seem to support the theory that Donald Trump is doing significantly better in key swing states than Mitt Romney did in 2012.  As you will see below, the latest numbers released by Florida, North Carolina, Colorado and Arizona all have good news for the Trump campaign.  Without a doubt, I still have an ominous feeling about what is going to happen tomorrow night, but so far at least there are some encouraging signs.

Florida

Early voting has become extremely popular in Florida, and at this point close to half of all voters in the state have already cast their ballots.

Donald Trump cannot win the election without Florida’s 29 electoral votes, and so to say that this is a “must win” for the Trump campaign would be a massive understatement.

Fortunately, the Trump campaign appears to be doing much better in Florida than the Romney campaign did in 2012.  The following comes from Politico

Florida Democrats increased their lead over Republicans in casting pre-Election Day ballots to nearly 33,000 as of Sunday morning, but the sheer number of new voters and independents makes it tougher than ever for experts to say whether Hillary Clinton has a clear advantage over Donald Trump in the nation’s biggest battleground state.

Of the record 6.1 million in-person early votes and absentee ballots cast, Democrats have an advantage over Republicans of only 0.5 percentage points, with each party casting roughly 39 percent of the ballots. Though it’s a lead for Democrats, they’re not going to match their 3.7-percentage-point lead in early votes by Election Day they enjoyed in 2012. And Republicans tend to outvote Democrats on Election Day in Florida.

On Monday, updated numbers for Florida were released, and we found out that the Democrats had increased their lead to about 87,000 votes.  But Trump is still doing much better than Romney was at this stage.

And the Trump campaign also has to be happy about the fact that first-time voters account for 25 percent of all the votes cast so far.  Throughout this election cycle Trump has shown that he can bring out people that have never voted before, and so officials in the Trump campaign have to be smiling about this.

However, one sign of trouble for the Trump campaign is the fact that there has been a 100 percent increase in early voting by Hispanics in Florida compared to 2012, and this appears to be fueled by dislike for Trump.  The following comes from the Miami Herald

Through Saturday, 565,000 Hispanics had completed early in-person voting in Florida, a 100 percent increase over 2012, according to an analysis by Dan Smith, a University of Florida political science professor who tracks voting data.

Including absentee ballots, 911,000 Hispanics have voted — more than a third of whom did not vote in 2012. “We’re witnessing explosive early voting turnout of Hispanics — both those newly registered to vote as well as those who sat on the sidelines in 2012,” Smith said.

As discussed above, Republicans tend to outvote Democrats on Election Day in Florida, so the key for the Trump campaign will be to have the same kind of Election Day turnout that the Romney campaign had in 2012.

If Trump wins Florida, he will have a legitimate shot at winning the election, but if he loses the state it will be virtually impossible for him to make up those 29 electoral votes elsewhere on the map.

North Carolina

Another state that the Trump campaign desperately needs is North Carolina.  Mitt Romney won this state back in 2012, and according to the Drudge Report the Trump campaign is doing even better than the Romney campaign did during early voting…

Another dramatic turn of events is being reported out of North Carolina this afternoon: Donald Trump has jumped past all expectations in early voting!

In 2012, Romney hit Election Day down 447,000 votes, based on early ballots. He went on to win the state by 97,000 votes.

Now, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal, Trump opens Election Day down 305,000!

North Carolina is another of the key battleground states that is going to help decide the election.  While not as important as Florida, the truth is that Donald Trump pretty much has to have it to have a legitimate shot.

Colorado

All along, most of the pundits have pretty much assumed that Hillary Clinton was going to win Colorado.

Unfortunately for her, the Denver Post is reporting that the number of Republicans that have voted so far exceeds the number of Democrats that have voted…

Republicans took the lead in early voting in Colorado at the end of the day Friday and held the advantage through the weekend despite robust Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts.

The latest early voting numbers released Monday morning show registered Republicans cast 652,380 ballots compared to 645,020 registered Democrats — a 7,360 vote GOP advantage. The breakdown looks like this: 35.2 percent Republican, 34.8 percent Democrat and 28.5 percent unaffiliated.

If Donald Trump could find a way to actually win Colorado, that would definitely lessen the pressure of having to win Nevada where he is not doing nearly as well so far.

Arizona

The state of Arizona used to be considered “deep red” territory, but during this election cycle it has been considered a battleground state.

Fortunately for Trump the poll numbers in Arizona have shifted in his direction in recent days, and the early numbers coming out of the state look very good for him

The Republican lead in absentee ballots returned is 95,000. Bill Dunn, the party’s director of early and absentee voting, said Republicans lead with 36.5 percent of absentee ballots requested but have an even greater advantage in absentee ballots returned, at 40 percent of the total.

In the waning days of the campaign Donald Trump has been criss-crossing the country, and he continues to draw absolutely enormous crowds.  Conservative voters are far more enthusiastic about Trump than they were about Romney, but will it be enough?

Some Republican strategists are convinced that it will not be enough.  In fact, one of them told CNN that he believes that Hillary Clinton is going to win by “an electoral landslide”…

Hillary Clinton will win in an electoral landslide on Tuesday, but the political baggage she has accumulated over the past year-and-a-half will dissuade congressional Republicans from working with her administration, says longtime Republican political strategist John Weaver.

“I believe she’s going to win in an electoral landslide and be the most unpopular president in electoral history, which is quite the paradox,” Weaver told David Axelrod on “The Axe Files” podcast, produced by the University of Chicago Institute of Politics and CNN.

And ultimately it could be the establishment Republicans and the “never-Trumpers” that make the difference and deliver the election to Hillary Clinton.  If you can believe it, some establishment Republicans are actually publicly announcing that they have voted for Hillary Clinton and are encouraging others to do the same.

If they can get just five percent of Republicans to follow them, they could completely alter the outcome of the election.  So let us hope that does not happen.

On a positive note, on Monday we learned that Hillary Clinton has canceled her celebratory fireworks for Tuesday night.  No reason was given for why the fireworks were canceled, but many are taking this as a sign that the Clinton campaign may not be as optimistic as they were previously.

In any event, we don’t have long to wait now until we find out who wins and who loses.

If you want Donald Trump to win, please go vote, because America may never be faced with this kind of a choice again.

I am absolutely convinced that this is a pivotal moment in American history, and on Tuesday night we find out what happens.

May God have mercy on the late, great United States of America.

  • Bill

    Evidently many voters are so delighted by the fantasy of the first woman president they overlook lies, poor health, and treason.

    Win or loose, the fact that so many votes have already been cast for a criminal shows that the moral compass of America no longer has directional integrity. Great danger lies ahead without a Trump win.

    • William Lutz

      Well great danger lies ahead with or without a Trump victory! I’ve been saying this for quite a while now.

    Sorry Mike. You are as successful at blocking me as you were successful at being an attorney.

    Well it is finally here. Election Day.

    COUNTDOWN. Today, November 8, 2016. Today I predict Mrs. Clinton will be elected our next president
    ——————————————————————————————–
    Posted on 9/12/2016.
    Mike, you like to point out things you said in the past.
    I will do the same thing after the election to this statement….. “The election will go on as planned and Mrs. Clinton will be the next POTUS.”

    • Bill

      You are right about one thing, it was planned…… By some very wicked, evil, and nasty people.

    • NorthernBud

      It’s quite clear from my viewpoint that your are completely obsessed with and jealous of Michael. Anyone who would dedicate this much time to routinely posting this crap is obviously unhinged in some sort of way. You should seek professional help.

      Of course Hillary will win. Do you think you’re smart or something? She may not even have to rely on fraudulent votes or rigging, this just goes to show the state that your nation is in.

      You’re cheering on an obviously lying, corrupt, deceitful individual, who purposely destroyed and deleted evidence.

      Have at it, you deserve the results, fools.

      Most in Canada would vote for Hillary too, no better here.

      If for some reason Trump does win (the cheating/fraud doesn’t work), I hope you cry. Maybe it will humble you a bit.

      50/50 chance of being right doesn’t make you smart.

  • Bill

    The loss of directional integrity comes from two areas created by democrats to perpetuate their existence. One is the welfare state with all the handouts (bribes for votes) the other is amnesty for aliens which is another bribe for votes. In either case the swamp becomes an ocean.

  • jacob

    How can we be proud of Hillary Clinton as president

    • Bill

      Real Americans will not have pride but will carry shame for the rest of their lives.

  • Phil from Germany

    Trump wont be allowed to win, looks like war will be here soon. Even sooner in America

    • Jerry C

      On the contrary, they will put Trump in so they can collapse the economy on his watch. There is no way those emails were released without their consent. No possible way.

    • my friend… organise your people with a sense of desperation and urgency…. do whatever you can within your power to organise weapons acquisitions. Europe will be on fire in near future with the numbers of jihad muslim invaders pouring in. They’re all just waiting for the signal.

  • Mike Smithy

    Whether Trump wins or loses, he has done a great service to the American people for exposing and unmasking the insidious corruption. Should he win, the establishment Republican’s are done for. The MSM presstitutes are done for. Last but not least, the Clinton Crime Family will be forced to pay for their crimes. Trump/Pence 2016.

    • Bill

      You are so right.

    • max gon

      Agree with you.

    • LowHand1954

      How in the hell does FL Electoral Win over THE Rest of the Nation ? Calif has more Humans in it than FL. What is so Popular in FL. Or is it the density of The Total Population, east of the Mississippi ? I need a shot cut to search Engines pleazzz.way to much Info spins my head off.

      • Mike Smithy

        You can answer your own question if you do some research on the Electoral College and extrapolate information from polling data that is perceived as reliable. Trump has a narrow path to victory and he must win Florida to have a chance at winning a minimum plurality of 270 electoral votes. To use an analogy, have you ever played poker and needed to draw a card or two in order to pull off an inside straight?

    • sister sodeplorable

      Now that I agree with that more people are awake now than before Trump began to blow the whistle.

  • Penn & Teller

    Mike, quite honestly I do not care about your ominous feeling.

    If tomorrow goes differently than the thoughts you have in your blog today, you will just delete it. POOF! It’s gone.

  • William Lutz

    Trump alone can’t restore this nation to greatness, so please stop it with the Trump fixation. Sure, he will bring Mrs. Clinton to justice and establish some economic reforms, but that’s about it. How do you expect America to be a paradise when we Americans have lost our sanity, conscience and decency? Do some of you guys believe Trump is the great Messiah with a magic wand that will make our troubles disappear? Come on, y’all know he doesn’t. I don’t want Trump playing God in the White House either.

  • Genada

    I think he will win the popular vote but lose the electoral college.

    No matter who you support I hope people will go out and vote. It’s a election that matters but no matter the outcome the United States will survive.

    • df NJ

      The blue states have a big proportion of the population. I doubt he wins the popular vote either.

  • Van Luong

    Boy! Are you guys a bunch of pessimistic? Have a little faith in the American spirit and go out and vote instead of sitting around worry about an outcome that you can do something about.

    • df NJ

      Early morning polls a packed to the gills in New Jersey.

      • Van Luong

        Trump is it! As we all did our part..

    • JC Teecher

      You cannot change the will of God, nor the judgment that comes as a result of the majority supporting an evil liberal, one world gov. beast system.
      The majority is wrong, because they see themselves as the way the truth and the life, rather than Jesus Christ.

      so shall it be, they shall reap as they sow.
      The majority had their chance to change things before the masses of delusioned Hispanics got here and supported the evil empire known as liberalism.

      The African Americans had 150 years before the Hispanics became a greater number, to figure it out, and step away from liberalism, corruption and one worldism. what did they do? They dug in their heels deeper in to the pits of despair by supporting the evils of liberalism.
      A few, less than 10 % of African Americans have come full circle and seen the workings of evil, and have made a change to the right side.

      But…too little too late. Now we come to the time frame , and time clock of the Almighty, and it isn’t going to be good for millions of liberal supporters.
      A vote for righting the ship, is meaningless, unless, the majority is in full support of righting the sinking ship called the US of A.

      • Van Luong

        God love is unconditional without demand and/or judgement. He gives his children the freedom to choose the life that will bring us closer to him if we desire and call it fore.

    Michael,

    this is a pivotal moment in the world history, or even in the human history. God bless the world.

    Switzerland is looking at you.

    • df NJ

      Are all Christians megalomaniacs? This being pivotal moment in world history seems a little over the top. Tomorrow, people are going to go work, buy gasoline, babies will be born, people will be laid off. The beat goes on.

      • Paul Patriot

        Yeah, but the Bible promises a time when the “beat” will change radically. You are seeing the big picture and the convergence that is taking place. Because America has had such influence in the world, and that we are the truly last bastion of “liberty”, what happens to America often has global consequences.

        The fact that America and its Constitutional liberties, are a thorn in the side of globalist. America’s individualism is a thorn in the side for the UN agenda 30, urban agenda, and in “sustainable development”

        If you understand what the agenda is for these, then you will see how important this election is and the repercussions that will follow.

        Don’t get me wrong, I think this nation is toast due to our unrepentant turning our backs on the God of our heritage, and unbridled lawlessness, and immorality that has overtaken our culture….

        If Hitler gets in, we know the push for globalism will be swift, and the loss of liberty will be guaranteed…..if Trump gets in, there is a real good chance that we may have a season of “liberty” remaining, and time for this nation to repent before the door is shut and our nation is no longer a place of relative freedom.

        • Extinction

          America is the last market not the bastion of liberty. It is because it is a market it influences the world.

        • Cheryl

          I agree and just want to briefly share a dream of judgment which I had two years ago, as last night for the first time I felt I had a fuller understanding of the dream. I was led to read Jeremiah 4 yesterday evening. At verse 5 it says “Sound the trumpet throughout the land” and “Gather together! Let us flee…” I felt strongly as I read that, whether or not he wins, Trump is a rallying cry to Christians to gather together for their own safety. Jer. 4 further reads, “Flee for safety without delay! For I am bringing disaster from the north, even terrible destruction.” My dream 2 years ago was of terrible destruction coming from the north. People were actually driving south to avoid it. In the dream I looked up and saw massive dark pocketed clouds covering the sky, coming from the north. Perhaps it is only symbolic of the judgment, which in Jeremiah comes from the north. Or perhaps it is an actual concrete description of how judgment will arrive — fires? volcano? bombs? I don’t know, but I felt I had to share this somewhere!

          • JC Teecher

            One enemy is coming from the North, that we have nothing to worry about, Cheryl.
            it will be the russian led federation of armies that come against the “house of Israel” known as North America.

            God Himself will destroy nearly all that army. Having said that, your dream will most likely be manifested as an even or events makes the lands of north america..desolate, for the what the armies of the Russian led federation see as an “opportunity”, to invade and conquer.

            That event or series of events, could be man made and orchestrated, or could be orchestrated by God against a defiant and Idol worshipping America.

            it could be a Yellowstone event, or it could be a CME event, or and EMP event…or all three; but something is in the air for the future of America.
            The future that will see chastisement and correction to turn the hearts of men.

        • I Think I’ll Eat Some Almonds

          okay

      • Paul Benson

        The ‘beat’ has come to an end quite suddenly in times past; as it will one day in the near future!

        And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. Luke 17:26-30

          • Richard T.

            Wouldn’t Noah and his family entering the ark be the “prior event”? Wouldn’t Lot and his family being taken out of Sodom by the angles the “prior event”? Not saying that I know exactly what is going to happen, I still need to study more, but the pattern is clearly there, isn’t it?

          • Paul Benson

            Notice it says the wrath fell ‘the day’ and ‘the same day’ in those accounts. This does not fit the pre-trib narrative but only a post-trib one.

            Most people think Lot had went up the mountain before God destroyed S. and G.; but if you take the time to actually read the account we see there were FIVE cities and the entire plain of Jordan slated for destruction that day; but God spared Lot and the city of Zoar he had entered (located right in the middle of the area destroyed) from the fire and brimstone which fell. God did not ‘take Lot out’; he was divinely protected right in the midst of the Judgment of that day. Here is an artivle I wrote on this event:
            https://pbenson.me/2016/05/24/no-rapture-in-lots-story/

          • JC Teecher

            The remnant, or the elect, and 7000 very elect will not be taken anywhere, as they will be present to make a stand against the Beast and Beast system.

            Why? As a witness for the world to see, and hopefully as the Holy Spirit speaks through these elect, as with the Pentecostal tongue, in which everyone hears in their own language, even down to the very dialect of their region; they hear and make the necessary change to accept Christ before he returns.

            Because; once He returns, to set up the Kingdom, there is no salvation for 1000 years. There are many many conversions, and changes of hearts during that time, but no “full” salvation, until the testing and trial by fire, via the release of Satan, near the end of that time.
            God is fair, and true, and so as is told, so it shall be.

            No pre-trib rapture for saints, elect, remnant, or especially the self-proclaimed christians that followed man’s lie of a pre-trib flyaway doctrine.
            It is written, learn it peoples, and get on with life, instead of looking for a secret fly-away event to escape all that is coming upon the earth. Live by faith, and not the workings of false doctrinated men of the cloth.

        • df NJ

          Maybe the Rapture happened in 2000 and the rest of you still remaining here are in denial.

      • Richard T.

        Jesus said in the Bible, “as the days of Noah, so shall be the days of the son of man”. The people basically keep living their life as usual. They eat, they drink, they marry, get married, they build and etc…and then the flood came and wipe them all out. So shall it be like in the day of the son of man. People will keep living their life as usual, until suddenly, Jesus returns for the 2nd time!

  • DJohn1

    I think all voters have a difficult decision to make in this election.
    Crooked Hillary or Obnoxious Trump. Both have winning points about them.
    Hillary brings experience to the table. Many years of experience along with that of her husband. With that experience comes a lot of baggage.
    Trump is basically a human being with a lot of baggage in his past.
    He does bring to the table a lot of business experience that could save this country from going bankrupt.
    Trump also brings a bluntness to the job and that means an honest man vs a crooked politician.
    Bluntness means telling the true no matter what the circumstances and who gains and loses.
    He is often in error. That also hurts his choices.
    Tonight a universe splits. One goes the way of Trump and the other goes the way of Hillary.

  • A Mosley

    As someone who doesn’t agree with either party and is choosing not to vote for personal reason, I would be curious to know since when has America truly been great, and great for whom? I am certain that America has never been great for anyone beside the white majority population of this country. This country wasn’t founded on Christianity. This country was founded on the horrific torment, abusive, inhumane treatment of minority people. The only reason why the white majority live in such a beautiful country is because minorities built it. We built the banks, we worked in the fields without rest, we built the white house, we built everything. All creations that you so proudly boast of are from the labor of minority people. When was America ever great? America deserves the wrath and destruction that is coming it’s way. Regardless of who wins, this country and it’s majority population will have hell to pay. You asked for it.
