Early voting results in Miami Dade seem to indicate that a seismic shift may be underway. This red wave could soon sweep the Democratic stronghold.
The status quo is being overthrown by a red wave

2018 Governor In 2018, Gov. Ron DeSantis was 20 points behind Andrew Gillum, the failed candidate for governor. He could be the Republican governor of the county for the first time since Jeb Bush’s 2002 victory.
At 1 p.m., on Nov. 3, the Miami-Dade supervisor for elections reported that 347.180 ballots were cast (22.70% active eligible voters).
Republicans currently lead by more than 1,000 votes

Although there are more Democrats (575,000) than Republicans (435,000), the Democrats have not yet shown up in significant numbers.
Olivio said, “We are not building our own base.”
About 27% of Republican voters had voted as of Wednesday, while only 21% of Democrats had voted. 58% of votes counted to-date have been sent by mail.
So far, Republicans favor early voting. However, Democrats are almost twice as likely mail vote than to vote early.
According to the Washington Post, the GOP is making significant progress with Hispanic voters in the county. The county has 72% Hispanic residents. This builds on the 2020 gains of former President Donald Trump.
According to a Telemundo/LX News poll, DeSantis leads Crist by 51% and 44% statewide among Hispanic voter. According to an InsiderAdvantage poll, the Republican governor is up 10 points across all groups.
Roger Ledesma (Democratic voter) told the Post that he didn’t plan to vote in this election because there aren’t “any great-looking candidates” for the Democrat Party.
Ledesma doesn’t like the idea of Democrat Charlie Crist becoming governor. He “doesn’t seem like the strongest person, but that’s what I suppose we have on the Democratic side.”
Fresh Take Florida reported Alina Garcia, a Republican running to the state House election, believes DeSantis can win Miami-Dade County as people are fed up of Democrats’ policies.
Garcia stated that “the average citizen has woken up” and is tired of all this nonsense. You’ll see Republicans outperform Democrats so often.
The Republican Party of Miami-Dade tweeted Wednesday that Democrats had spent years degrading our economy. Their chickens are returning to the nest!
