“We’ve Got to Stop the Bleeding” – Democrats Sound Alarm Over Low Voter Turnout in Miami

Headlines Politics U.S.

Democrats are sounding alarm bells over low voter turnout rates in Miami-Dade County – Florida’s biggest county and traditionally a Democratic bastion.

So far, a strong Republican showing in the county is risking putting the state in the Republican column on Election Day.

Democrats rely on a strong turnout in Miami-Dade to offset Republican majorities in much of the remainder of the mostly-red-county state.

So far, Democrats are turning out at lower rates than Republicans, and at lower rates than at this point in 2016, when Hillary Clinton won the county by 29 percentage points, but still lost the state to President Trump.

There has been a groundswell of sentiment against the Biden/Kamala Harris ticket in South Florida, and for President Trump, for several weeks.
