    A huge increase in early voting has given Democrats a decided advantage over Republicans in Florida -- a major departure from statewide voting trends four years ago, according to a Miami Herald analysis of early and absentee ballots cast so far this year.

    Through Thursday, Democrats cast 46 percent of the 3.4 million early and absentee votes in Florida, while Republicans cast 38 percent.

    That's a big shift since 2004, when Democrats were outvoted 44 percent to 41 percent by Republicans in early and absentee ballots, according to a study of Florida voting data.

    The recent Democratic gains have been most pronounced in early voting, where Democrats have outnumbered Republicans by 432,000 out of nearly two million voters.

    Florida has been invaded by Obama from what I hear. Obama volunteers are EVERYWHERE.

    Even if that were true, which it's not, that story was dated October 29th. Since then, millions of people have voted.

    The number of Democrats registered here in Florida is way up. And the rate of registration for blacks is also much higher than in 2004.

    The polls are tight here but it would not surprise me in the least if Obama won.
