2020 Early Voting shattering records, Democrats with the early edge


The 2020 Presidential election is approaching in a few weeks, 22 million Americans have already cast their votes, with Democrats coming out to vote by a wide margin.

Democrats have actually done better than Republican politicians at the polls up until now by a two to one margin. The tallies cast so far represent 16 percent of all those made in the 2016 presidential race, according to a review by the Associated Press.

Specialists predict the 2020 contest may see as much as 150 million votes cast, making it the highest turnout election because 1908.

The early voting numbers may provide Democrats an early benefit heading into Nov 3rd election day. With core voters banked, the party will have the ability to focus its efforts on running up the numbers with more difficult to reach irregular voters.

The party is also seeing excellent news from early absentee ballots too. More than 75 percent of the 437,000 mailed-in tallies in Pennsylvania have been from Democrats, while half of absentees in Florida have actually been blue, compared to simply a third Republican.

“This is all encouraging, but three weeks is a lifetime,” Democratic data strategist Tom Bonier told the Associated Press, saying it was important for the party not to get cocky. “We may be midway through the first quarter and Democrats have put a couple of points on the board.”
