3. One wonders what those numbers would be if:

1. Everyone who tried had actually gotten to vote.

2. Every vote had been counted. Correctly.

8. FL is saying it won't declare a winner until Nov 20th.

What is it they are waiting for?

9. More from the Tampa Bay Buzz Blog...

NOVEMBER 10, 2012

Barack Obama now ahead by more than 73,000 votes in Florida

Palm Beach County, which lagged behind the 66 others, has finally finished counting its absentee ballots and it only helped President Obama.

Obama picked up a net 6,910 more votes over Republican Mitt Romney. That helped increase Obama's overall lead in Florida to 73,694. That's an increase of more than 15,600 since Thursday, when the Herald first reported Obama had little chance of losing and that a Romney adviser acknowledged the Republican loss.

Obama's lead now stands at 50.01 percent to Romney's 49.13. The final results are due now at the Secretary of State's office.

Counties are still counting provisional ballots, which are cast when a voter's status is in doubt. And overseas ballots are still not in. The former often favor Democrats. The latter have favored Republicans. But Obama has pulled relatively strong military support, so the chances that Romney can make up for the loss with overseas ballots looks less and less likely as Obama's lead has grown.

The race won't officially be called until Nov. 20, when the state canvassing board meets to certify the results.

-- Marc Caputo, Miami Herald

10. If the margin is larger than 0.5 % (it is larger now), then there is no recount.

12. Thank you Florida! I live here and we've let them know we're no pushovers. They can't buy us either!

You Romney supporters had better stop watching Murdoch/Ailes TV if you really want to know what the hell is going on in the state, the country and the world! FAUX tv viewers are more uninformed and misinformed than people who don't watch the news at all. Wake up!

14. Florida is trending blue on the Presidential level.

Obama had a drop off in FL but it was smaller than his nationwide dropoff percentage wise and he actually won places like Miami-Dade and other urban centers by larger margins than last time, which let him offset his decline in some suburbs and rural counties.
