HUGE: Republicans Boost Advantage to Nearly 10,000 in Traditionally Democrat Miami-Dade County, Florida Ballots Cast
On Monday, turnout was 31% in Miami-Dade County, which consists of both early voting and mail-in ballots, ABC reported.
This is the general trend, according to Christina White, the Supervisor of Elections Office in Miami-Dade County, although the Republican advantage over the Democratic Party is unusual.
“The trend does seem to be changing a bit in Miami-Dade,” said Christina White.
As of Monday, the agency reported that 182,000 Republicans and 178,000 Democrats had cast ballots, with the Republicans having a lead of over 4,000. Those who identified with no political party cast more than 109 thousand ballots.
On Tuesday, the Republican lead in total ballots cast had grown to nearly 10,000 in Miami-Dade county.

Miami-Dade is going to be an absolute bloodbath for Democrats.
In 2018, Dems outvoted Republicans by at least 70k votes.
In the 22 point shift in 2020, Dems still outvoted Republicans by 90k.

“DeSantis could win Miami-Dade County based on this turnout alone, *without persuasion.* And polls have been showing an 8-10 point persuasion shift from 2020,” pollster Patrick Ruffini said.
Another user responded, “And let’s not forget that those independents have trended Republican in Miami-Dade County for the past few election cycles. A 60-40 split among NPAs would be a conservative assumption.”
