Florida Democrats have increased their registration advantage by 1,950 voters in the past 12 days

The increase was 815 voters on Tuesday and Wednesday. That's a little unusual.


December 7th - 556,788

December 19th - 558,738

2. Even if true, that won't hold once the chained CPI is implemented and

 

Republics start saying with some truth that the Democrats just cut your Social Security.

3. Most elderly people in Florida vote Republican.

That's the reason the 2012 election in Florida was relatively close.

5. I think Dems made headway with elderly voters in this election.

I did a lot of phone-banking this cycle. Link: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021798362

It's obvious that the elderly bloc favored Republicans, but a lot of the seniors I talked to were very concerned about Medicare and the inclusion of Paul Ryan on the Romney ticket was a red flag for those voters. I think some of them flipped on that basis and others decided to stay home.

It's a mistake to think that seniors can be ignored because "they're going to vote Republican anyway."
