3. It would be wonderful if Obama carries FL... But I have my doubts.

Yet there are so many people at the events when Obama visits, and he's visited often. I hope that everyone of them will have their votes counted.

2. Oh yes

My hope is that the rather brash and crass manner in which Rick Scott and his cronies tried to deny people their voting rights has caused a backlash. However, we need to be vigilant, as the GOP knows A) they pulled off this trick 12 years ago and B) the chances of them actually being held to account are slim.

By Sean Whaley | 04 September, 2012

CARSON CITY – Democrats continued to outpace Republicans in their voter registration efforts in August, signing up 12,163 new voters to 5,042 for Republicans, the Secretary of State’s office reported today.

Registered nonpartisans increased by 6,575 during the same time period, also exceeding the registrations by the GOP.

Of the 1,122,236 active registered voters statewide, 41.3 percent, (463,229), are Democrats, 36.3 percent, (407,513), are Republicans, and 16.7 percent, (186,941), are nonpartisans.

The August efforts mirror those reported from July, when Democrats registered 8,121 active voters compared to 3,705 active voters for Republicans. Active registered nonpartisans increased by 4,946 during the same time period.
