GOP voters have demolished the Democratic Party’s early voting lead just a few hours into voting on Election Day. If you listen really closely, you can hear the screams and cries of agony coming from radical leftists all over the country.
Buckle up, folks. Today is going to be a wild, wild ride.
“Republicans in Florida outvoted Democrats by 20k votes as of 7:20 AM…. and the panhandle isn’t even open yet,” author Ryan James Girdusky noted on Twitter, echoing a similar observation by Republican pollster Patrick Ruffini.

During the early voting period, Democrats outvoted Republicans in the state of Florida by 1.3%, slightly lower than their 2016 advantage of 1.4% heading into Election Day. A wave of Republican voters on Election Day powered President Trump to victory in the state.
Due to fears over the coronavirus pandemic, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was expected to build up significant leads in mail-in and early voting. Polls have indicated Biden has an overwhelming lead with those who planned to vote early and by mail, while Trump is slated to garner a significant lead among those that planned to vote in-person on Election Day.
This could mean big trouble for Democrats who were really excited about the lead they were afforded by early voting, as it indicates they might not have had as drastic of one as they’d originally thought.
Remember, there are a lot of folks out there who were waiting until today to ensure the vote was properly counted, fearful that something might happen to their ballot if it was done through the mail or early voting.
We’ll have to wait and see, however, if the Election Day wave that Republicans are hoping for shows up and is enough to push Trump over the edge to seal the deal on a second term.
