Florida and independents

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: polls

The one thing everyone should know about Florida. In 2012 Obama won and was almost the exact margin he won independents by. In 2016 Trump won by almost the exact amount he won independents by.
I would expect that before votes are officially counted that the Republicans may have an edge in votes totals over Democrats. There has been a dramatic increase in No Party Affiliation and the 4 A+ rated polls done before election days had Trump losing Independents from between 17 to 20 points. If that is true, then the GOP could be ahead of pure Democrats votes by almost 200,000 votes and the Independents could carry Biden.
It could be very close.

1. That's my hope. NPAs have grown faster than either of the 2 other parties as I understand.

I hope they break heavily for Biden.

4. better than 2016

Hi,
I don't know if he can win Florida but things look better right now than they did for Clinton in 2016. The margin in the Independent vote will determine the outcome.
Thanks for replying

3. Here's an interesting view ..

A friend of mine has a 21 year old son with a 20 year old girlfriend, this will be their very first presidential election, they both registered as Independents because they don't care for the squabbling between Dem and Reps ... BUT, they're both voting for Biden. I honestly believe that when this is over, we will owe a big thank you to young voters.
