People keep focusing on turnout in Miami-Dade......


..... but isn't Broward the most Democrat-heavy county in Florida, thus the key to the election?

2. I keep hearing how broward has record high turnout...

Maybe, it will offset the lagging Latino turnout in Miami-Dade.

4. What the hell makes him so attractive to Latino's?!

Did they not get the message, that trump’s rallies are really for “Whites Only”?
Maybe they should take a good look at the crowd that ok with Latino/Mexican children being put in cages?

5. From what I've read (and remember) it's pretty complicated, for example,

Puerto Ricans are very pro Biden, while many Cubans are swinging toward Trump. I've also read that many Cubans identify more strongly as American than Hispanic. CNN had an expert on talking about this, and it was very interesting. There was much more to it - she had additional information about Mexican Americans and people from Central & South America, but I can't remember much if anything about that.

On edit, I do remember her saying that Cubans, in general, also don't appreciate being labeled as Hispanic or Latinx.

7. One thing is pure machismo. And it's only for lack of a good Anglo-Saxon word...

.. that I use that. I don't think that Latinos and Blacks are more machismo prone than whites, but until Trump took center stage there was no place for such males to turn. There is a shift among Black and Latino males from really low to 15 or 20 percent for Trump. And if you eliminate the Latino fear of socialism there is NO policy reason that could account for this shift. I began waking up to this after several interviews on PBS of White idiots who just said out loud that it was Trump's aggressiveness (I wish I could remember the other words) that attracted them. They were grinning and practically bouncing up and down.
