Expert weighs in that Miami-Dade appears to be a Republican guy

DORAL, Fla. – The Miami-Dade County Department of Elections headquarters in Doral has seen a steady stream of drivers arriving throughout the day to cast their votes by absentee ballot.

Among the issues they told Local 10 News that brought them to the polls were women’s rights, legislation for school teachers and for first responders.

“The importance has to do with the choice we have between two very polarized parties with two very different visions for the future,” said Charles Zelden, professor of history and politics at Nova Southeastern University.

As of 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, the Miami-Dade Elections Authority reported that more than 163,000 registered voters had cast their ballots on Election Day.

Add to that the early poll numbers and the district’s turnout of 42 percent, with the Republicans overtaking the Democrats.

“The Democratic Party has fragmented over the past four years,” Zelden said. “Loss in the gubernatorial race four years ago really hit the party. And so, not only do you have the possibility of a red wave going off among Republicans, but Florida fundamentals are resonating among Republicans. It’s going to be a long night for Florida Democrats.”
