Polls tightened across a series of battleground states, with many now virtual ties, but early voting patterns provide some predictions.

Early voting patterns, with election day now here, indicated positives for both sides when all was said and done (the statistics in this article were updated early on November 8). Republicans fared well in Florida and North Carolina; Democrats are doing well in Nevada and Colorado. Hispanic turnout is surging in some key battleground states, helping Clinton. In other battleground states, though, African-American turnout is down, concerning Democrats.

See below for a RealClearPolitics electoral college map with the battlegrounds shaded gray. Those are the states where people are most closely studying early voting patterns.

battlegrounds

Republicans say they are doing better than Mitt Romney’s 2012 early voting numbers “when combining ballot requests, return rates and early in-person voting” in Florida, Iowa, Michigan and North Carolina, said The Los Angeles Times. Other states, though, like Nevada, have early voting trends that are ominous for Trump.

A mixed bag in the battleground states likely helps Clinton, who leads in more of those states’ polls going into the November 8 general election and who can afford to lose more states than Trump, who has to basically run the table in deadlocked states and possibly upset Clinton in a state she was expected to win (like Pennsylvania or Colorado). Florida is pretty much a must-win state for both candidates, although there are ways each can win without it (more for Clinton).

There are limitations as to how much early voting can tell us. No states break down early votes by candidate. However, some states do break down early voting by party affiliation (others don’t). This, too, has limitations. It can’t tell us how unaffiliated voters broke or the degree of cross-over voting, or voting for third party candidates, and this has been a non-traditional race. However, it can tell us something, especially when juxtaposed against 2012 early voting patterns or geography (Democrats usually lead in early voting, so it’s the comparison to 2012 that matters most). Nearly 40 million Americans had cast early votes as of November 6. One study found Clinton leading 9 percent in overall early voting, but, again, it’s state-by-state battleground comparatives to 2012 that matter most.

Not all states allow robust early voting. Robust early voting helps Clinton because Trump suffered in the polls in many states in mid-October in the midst of the sexual assault allegations against him but has recovered in recent weeks, the last week especially. He is now aggressively campaigning in some states without robust early voting, such as Michigan, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania. Those states only allow early voting for limited reasons.

Here’s what you need to know about early voting results as of November 6 in some of the most important battleground states:


Florida

Statistics for November 7 out of Florida show, according to the Secretary of State:

Vote by mail:

Republican 1,047,119
Democrat 980,440
Other 64,338
No party affiliation 457,756

Voted early (in person)

Republican 1,425,312
Democrat 1,580,003
Other 89,998
Unaffiliated 779,639

Here are the totals:

Total ballots cast early in Florida by mail and in person: 6,424,595 (that’s almost half of all voters, and it’s an increase over past elections.)

Republicans: 2,472,431 (38.5%)
Democrats: 2,560,443 (39.9%)

Democrats cast slightly more early votes overall. However, it’s unclear how unaffiliated voters will break (but polls have indicated they are breaking more for Trump in Florida).

It’s the comparison to past patterns that matters, though. In 2008, according to CNN, Democrats also led Republicans in early voting. Black share of the electorate has dropped since then, although Latino turnout is up, said CNN.

Politico said Democrats led early voting returns in 2012 43% to 40%. In 2012, Barack Obama won Florida by the slimmest of margins – 0.9%. Thus, a drop off in the Democratic advantage in early voting bodes well for the GOP.

The New York Times says that Hispanic turnout surged in Florida in early voting by 3 percent, making up 15% of the early vote in 2016 and 12% of the electorate in 2012.

According to The Huffington Post, overall, “Slightly more registered Democrats than Republicans have voted in Florida thus far, but Democrats’ advantage is lower than it was at this point in 2012 ― and historically, more Republicans vote on Election Day in Florida.” However, Florida’s early voting tallies showed surges in Democratic strongholds, the site said. Furthermore, it depends on how independents broke, and The Huffington Post said a bigger portion of Florida independents is now non-white.

The early voting period in Florida has officially ended. Who won the state: Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?

Nevada

According to the Nevada Secretary of State, here are the percentage breakdowns for early votes in Nevada:

Democrat: 40.62%
Republican: 35.43%
Other: 23.95%

Trump has taken the lead in recent polls out of this battleground state.

The Democrats had an edge in 2012, too. They led 44 percent with Republicans at 37 percent. That means that Democrats this year have an edge in early voting of +5.19%. In 2012, they had an edge of +7, so Democrats don’t have as much of an early voting lead in Nevada now as they did in the last presidential election.

However, Obama won Nevada in 2012 52.3% to 45.7%.

Nevada reporter Jon Ralston has been analyzing early voting patterns. He’s found such good news for Clinton as to declare the race over because of voting patterns in key Democratic counties, including a surge in Hispanic voters. This is what he wrote on November 5, “Let me answer the question both sides are asking: Could Trump still win Nevada? Well…yes, BUT: Let me remind you of the math: Trump would need to be holding 90 percent of the GOP base and Clinton would have to be losing 15-20 percent of hers and he would have to be winning indies for him to be competitive. Let me be clear: None of those things are likely.”

KTVN-TV reported that “the number of ballots cast before Election Tuesday was up in 2016 compared to 2012, but there are also more than 200,000 active voters now compared to then.” The television station said Democrats had a higher turnout in 2012, and pointed out there is no way to know what percentage of people will cross over and vote for a candidate from a different party.


Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and Michigan

All eyes are on Pennsylvania because it would be a huge pick up for Trump and polls have tightened to the margin of error (with Clinton still maintaining a slight lead.) However, early voting is very limited in Pennsylvania. Thus, only 5% of the state early voted in 2012. Early voting is not much of a factor in Pennsylvania in contrast to a state like Nevada, where 69% or so of the state early votes. That helps Trump in these states, though, since he’s recovered in many polls since mid October.

The same is true of Michigan and New Hampshire. They do not allow early voting for all. Clinton leads in Michigan and Trump in New Hampshire, although the Trump lead is in the margin of error and the race has tightened in both states.


Colorado

The Denver Post has a ballot tracker that shows the following early voting tallies for November 6:

Republicans 652,380 (35.2%)
Democrats 645,020 (34.8%)
Unaffiliated 527,706
Libertarian 17,359
Other 9,564
Total: 1,852,029

The Huffington Post, after analyzing 2014 midterm election data, said, “Republicans need at least a 7 point registration advantage to be competitive” in early voting – something they did not come close to achieving.

This is good news for Democrats. The polling average for Colorado is in the margin for error, but Clinton still leads. In 2012, Democrats had 35 percent of early votes and Republicans had 37 percent.

Thus, in 2012, Republicans had a 2 percentage point early voting edge. This year, Democrats have an edge of .3%. And remember Obama won Colorado 51.2% to 46.5% in 2012. It’s unclear how unaffiliated voters would break, of course. That could be a big wildcard. But so far early voting tallies don’t provide any indication that Trump is outperforming Mitt Romney’s numbers in Colorado.


North Carolina

In 2012, Democrats had 48 percent of early votes and Republicans had 32 percent. That was a +16 point edge. Showing the limitations on using early voting as a predictor of election outcomes, Romney won the state 50.39% to 48.35%.

This year, North Carolina is reporting that 3,183,492 people have already voted as of November 8. Here’s the partisan breakdown:

Democrat: 41.7%
Republican: 31.9%
Unaffiliated: 26.1%
Libertarian: 0.32%

That’s a 9.8 percentage point Democrat early voting edge, but that’s down more than 6 percentage points from 2012, which was a year Republicans won the state. Thus, early voting tallies bode well for Trump, who’s pushed the North Carolina polling to a dead heat in the past week.

CNN also found that early voting for Democrats has not matched Obama’s pace, whereas Trump has outperformed Romney’s, adding, “Independent voters came out this time in droves. They cast nearly 810,000 votes, up a whopping 42% from 2012.” It’s unclear how they will break, but Trump has done well with Independent voters in some states.

There’s some ugliness behind the numbers. In North Carolina, 17 counties controversially decreased the number of early voting locations, said NBC News; this has resulted in long lines at some polling places and lower early voting tallies. NBC said one county, Guilford County, which houses the largely black city of Greensboro, “cut early voting locations from 16 to just one.” This has resulted in declining early voting totals in North Carolina overall. A federal judge has ordered North Carolina to restore purged voter registrations as the result of an NAACP lawsuit.


Utah

The Salt Lake Tribute reported that Democrats have an edge in turnout, although not in raw numbers because Utah is such a conservative state.

Republican: 39.9% (268,259 votes)

Democrat: 45.4% (72,356 votes)

Unaffiliated: 33.7% (177,467 votes)

In Utah, 1.5 million people are registered to vote. According to the Utah Secretary of State:
Republican 720,354
Democrat 176,687
Unaffiliated 615,002

When you see the data above, it’s hard to see why some have been talking about Utah as a possible state that could spoil the electoral college math for Trump. However, independent candidate Evan McMullin, who is from Utah, has been running well in some polls. Still, Trump has recovered in polling and leads an average of more than 10%. Early voting has declined in Utah, showing some voters may be waiting until the last minute to decide.


Georgia

Final early voting tallies for Georgia shattered records there:

Georgia doesn’t break down early votes by party affiliation. However, as with some other states, Clinton’s concern is that fewer African-Americans are voting early.

According to CNN, as of November 1, 1.5 million votes had already been cast in the state. Of those, 31 percent were from African American voters, a decrease from 36 percent at the same time in 2012. NBC reported November 7, though, that black turnout ended up increasing slightly.

Clinton has made Georgia competitive, although Trump leads in recent polls there.


Wisconsin

As with Georgia, Wisconsin does not release party affiliation of early voters.

In Wisconsin, 775,560 cast early ballots.

That shattered a record. In 2012, a total of 664,597 early votes were cast in Wisconsin.

Geography bodes well for Clinton as liberal Dane County and swing areas in the Fox Valley drove the increases, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said.


Iowa

There’s good news for Republicans in Iowa. CNN says Iowa early votes by Democrats were about 3 percent off their 2012 pace.

Democrats lead in early voting in Iowa overall, but they did in 2012 too, and they have a smaller edge. Overall early vote numbers in Iowa have decreased as well, said CNN.

The Cedar Rapids Gazette reported November 7 that Democratic early voting had fallen off by 8 percent whereas Republican was up by 1.


Ohio

Ohio also doesn’t release party affiliation of early voters. However, CNN says there’s also good news for Republicans in Ohio, reporting that early voting in Democratic areas was less than Barack Obama in 2012.

The Clinton campaign was offering free tacos to early voters, which wasn’t illegal because the tacos were available to all, said Cleveland.com.

In one key Ohio Democratic county where Clinton needs to win big, “early-vote requests by Democrats in Cuyahoga County, however, are down 35 percent compared with the same point in 2012, and ballots returned are off by 31 percent,” said Bloomberg, although Democratic early voting picked up for Clinton slightly but still off Obama’s pace. In the end, according to Cleveland.com, voting dropped off 16% in a Democratic county that Clinton needs to win, but overall early voting rose in the state.


Arizona

Hispanic turnout was up in early voting in some key states, such as Arizona (New Mexico also). According to The Huffington Post, 1.6 million people cast early votes, up from 2012, and represents more than 70 percent of the state. Registered Republicans have a 6.3 percentage point lead, but there was no 2012 figure available for comparison, said the news site.

Trump has recovered in the polls and leads Arizona in polling averages.


Virginia

In Virginia, the home of Clinton running mate Tim Kaine, there was good news for the ticket as early voting rose 18%, an increase driven largely by northern Virginia, a Democratic area. Clinton leads in Virginia by a fairly comfortable margin.

  1. Tbe author is trying to sway that Hillary is leading and assuming the dem votes arnet crossing over despite many polls and groups are out there that dems are turning to trump in some areas. NC, Florida, Iowa, Ohio look very good for trump as the numbers just arent there for Hillary. Colorado despite what the author is saying, she is leading… is def too close to call with dems only up like 7,000 votes ans massive independents voting. That was a terrible error on the writer on this article to assume she is leading Colorado. If anything its a dead heat. If trump wins PA or michgian it will be over… look out for those two states. I hope and pray fraud will be controlled. Massive frauds have akready happened by dems and they have Preaidsnt Obama and dems blessing to do so.

      • I bought brand new RED Ferreri by working ONline work. Six month ago i hear from my friend that she is working some online job and making more then 98$/hr i can’t beleive. But when i start this job i have too beleived herNow i am also making 96$/hr if you want to try just check this out……

        Please copy the link below❥❥❥❥❥❥❥ MomJob70.Tk

      • Jason really wants a lying corrupt globalist married to a sexual predator in the white house and he wants the world to know it.

        • Such a typlcal Trumpanzee rant . . . all sorts of slurs and lies, but not facts and documentation to back it up. Geesh, sure hope you’re never on a jury.

    • Your right on . Hillary is not Obama to African Americans or to independents. Hillary is such a bad candidate she pushes down democrats early voting lead in many states. When 81 percent think a candidate is unethical or illegal. they are not getting elected. Kim Jong Un has better reputation for honesty that Crooked Hillary.

      • What’s with the third-grade name calling . . . I mean “Crooked Hillary . . . REALLY? I expect more from an 8-year-old! Sad, man, sad!!

    • More people are crossing party lines to vote for Clinton than to vote for Trump. One poll, questioning people who voted, found that 28% of registered Republicans voted for Hillary vs 6% of Democrats who said they voted for Trump.

      • A completely over skewed MSNBC poll even the author admits is way off. Not to mention of the 718 people surveyed, only 311 claimed early voting. But I am sure this highly accurate poll is completely on point. After all, Trumps real name was posted in the story. If they are close enough to the campaign to know he is really Trumpy McMoron, it has to be legit. Right? :D

      • I consider myself Independent, so I vote the lesser of two evils. In the past I have voted Democrat for President (mostly – one exception, Perrot). This is the first time I have EVER considered a Republican nominee because I am tired of politics as usual (as I am sure most people are). We need a serious third choice. Regardless, I will NOT vote for Hillary. I have never liked her.

        • Sorry, Mary P . . . I appreciate and share much of your frustration, and am a long-time Independent myself, but I just can’t support the KKK’s candidate.

          • But you can support the Communist Party of America, Mrs. Clintion? Are you that shallow that a certain organization supports a candidate, Vote for the person and the parties platform. If you happen to be Pro-Life than you can NOT support the National Democratic Ticket, since the Dems support late term abortion and abortion in general.

            I agree Mr. Trump is not my ideal candidate, but I also do not want another four or eight years of Obama, I would have hoped that Mrs. Clinton would have offered us a different look than another eight years of Obama’ policies. The Affordable Health Care is a great social idea for providing proper health care to low income, unfortunately it does not work and the new price increases will only HURT the MIDDLE CLASS with further burden of this failed health system. Then you have Pres. Obama’s and his current and former Judicial System that passes judgement on civil matters before all the evidence is in or a trial has started and lately the crowning policy touch of allowing certain persons to use bathroom facilities depending on how they view their gender, so a unscrupulous person can say I am female and use the opportunity to violate your daughter, only if that person has had a mandatory sex change, they should not object to that. If they do then I don’t trust their motives. I think that would have been a logical policy to have considered, but in this political correct world that Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton live in the ceiling is now the floor, the world is turned upside down and we allow foreign rioters to attack our embassy and murder our ambassador without reprisals and this is the thinking process of our current President and I assume Mrs. Clinton since she supports Pres. Obama.

            There are usually two sides to every coin or story, but in this case it is a two sided coin with the same face and similar global viewpoint. We may not like Mr. Trump but we do need a change in Washington and the way business is done. The majority should rule and not the special interests or PC correct viewpoints, without violating our Constitutional rights.

    • I’d like to know where all this ‘massive’ voter fraud is happening. Please don’t point me to just ‘Google’ it. There hasn’t been one reputable news agency that has had any reputable pundit say anything other than voter fraud is so minor, it’s never worth even talking about. If you get your news from disreputable sources, then you will probably be very disappointed. I will say on a personal note that I am a dem. and voted for “her!” but I won’t necessarily be disappointed if he wins. I just couldn’t bring myself to vote for him but she makes me want to vomit. I almost didn’t vote at all. It’s all been so sickening but I felt an obligation to. I figure if she wins and in four years, if the conservatives can come up with something, anything that doesn’t have scandal associated with him/her, I’ll probably cast my vote for him/her. I’m switching to Independent right after this election.

  2. Whatever happens MERRY CHRISTMAS Mr. Trump…Madame President… and all the citizens of the great USA and of the world. Also MERRY CHRISTMAS… Mr. Pence..Vice President Kaine… Mr Guilliani…Mr ??? Governor of New Jersey and the blond lady who always defends Mr Trump…Ms Con???.. 
    It was a good ride and thanks for the exciting campaign

  5. Heay Trump I thaink you going to win you go to be amazing president I no you will do very thing in your power and well beinging

        • They say Trump is winning California and New York and Wash DC and Florida and Mich and PA and Minn and Wisconsin and CT and MA, Vermont, Maine, and Virginia, and Washington state and Oregon and Hawaii and RI, and Delaware, and Maryland, and all the Red states and all the battleground states. I think Hillary might win New Jersey, but that’s it. That’s what they’re saying! I’m hearing! People are saying!

        • Stevie, sexual issues seem to really upset you . . . impotency issues . . . or a predator like Donnie . . . either way, really weird, dude.

      • So oral sex in the oval office with an intern who then is slandered by HRC is ok. Jay Z at a rally singing the N word and bi***s slurping his juice and HRC coming out and saying that is my friend. That is not hypocrisy at all. Its only good for the goose but not for the gander.

        • JC, dearest, I don’t know where you’ve been, but news flash, Bill Clinton is not running for President; Hillary is. I no more hold HRC responsible for Bill’s peccadilloes, any more than I hold Donald responsible for all of Melania’s nude photographs for all the men’s magazines she posed for, or even for Melania, breaking immigration laws by working without a work visa, and then lying about, so she could get a work visa.. As far as Hillary slandering Monica, I don’t know about you, but if my spouse cheated on me I wouldn’t exactly have loving thoughts towards the woman he was cheating with . . . my gawd, if HRC can’t even stand up to the “other woman,” who initiated the whole third-rate affair (by Monica’s own admission–but Bill wasn’t a jerk to go for it), then I’d doubt HRC’s ability to stand up to international terrorists. Hillary’s has no interest in being a victim, be it personally, or as president. As far as JayZ using vulgar language, Jayz is Ted Nugent’s black twin brother. Good old Teddy, who while campaigning alongside Donald, said: ““[Michigan has] the hardest-working s**t-kickers mankind has ever known,” and then proceeded to grab his crotch, while saying, “I’ve got your blue state right here. Black and blue.” As far as Donnie;s vulgar, vile language, we don’t have enough time to go there. So, if there’s hypocrisy, I have to defer to Donnie and the Trumpanzees–they leave HRC and the Democrats in the dust.

        • No, oral sex in the oval office is not okay. However, as long as it was consensual (and I see no reason to believe otherwise) it’s not illegal. Immoral, maybe, but not illegal.

      • Hey Scott its better to be grabbed than to be raped and your darling candidate demoralized all of Slick Willy’s victims. Lets not forget there is no proven facts he did what he said unless you want to believe this women who have been discredited 1 by 1 all of these women suddenly appear with allegations as far back as 30yrs. I guess you are for her corrupt pay to play accepting hundreds of millions from foreign country’s who throw gays off roofs, behead christians and oppress women. Or how about her stance on abortion, allow a fetus to be aborted during delivery a tube stuck under the skull up into the brain and the brain sucked out until the skull collapses. How about her devious visits to Epstein’s Orgy Island in the Caribbean 6 times and slick Willy 26 times where underage girls perform illicit acts. Lets not forget the rumors of possible child sex running that NYPD is investigating. How about all of Wikileaks revealing these E-Mails I guess your for the sale of 20% of our uranium to a Russian Company but yet its Trump who has ties with Russia what a Hypocrite. You Scott need to talk facts not hearsay. Francis Pollock

    • Look at the LA times Poll which is extreme says Trump has 95 percent chance of winning popular vote win. Separate what people think and who really votes . Thinking does not count but voting does. Total cast votes for 2016 will be less than 2012 because it is the most negative race in 50 years, The percent of early voting to total votes will increase. Trump leads with old age group the most reliable group that votes out of habit on election day. The seniors are off on election day have time to vote and always vote . The seniors are block voting trump. For LA times to be right the negatives on Republican and Democrat must be very high and turnout low. What is happening as young middle age moderns are discouraged they are not showing up as in Obama election of 2012 . That is consistent with lower early turnout for 2016 compared to 2012. Crooked Hillary is not black Obama Americas first AA president and does not have appeal to blacks liberals young social progressives . The black president thing can not carry Hilary even though he is desperately trying. The young and middle aged are sick of rising Obama care premiums . Trump is a populist form of Romney but is not running against Obama . Hillary is white corporate sellout .81 percent thought Hillary was either illegal or unethical. Despite consolidated media real voting will be very low and dominated by older voters and young and middle age sick of Obamacare A trend that may worry the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton: While many local clerks are reporting big spikes in absentee voting, the city of Detroit, where Clinton is counting on a big turnout among African-American voters on Nov. 8, is reporting slower than usual requests and returns of absentee ballots, despite having four satellite voting locations open across the city. Its not a replay of Obama and Romney. No its Trump v. Clinton Foundation. Clinton is so desperate that she and OBAMA hit Michigan on Monday the final day. Not even Michigan is safe for Clinton.

      • Trump is gonna win 100%! He’ll get at least 350 electoral votes! He’s gonna win CA and NY and all the Romney states, and win at least 45 out of 50 states and knock Crooked Hillary to prison. Just what you Trumpanzees wish! Oh and Trump is gonna win Hawaii too!

    • hay meryane , deed yoo goe too ckool and lern inglesh ore ahr yoo porely edamukateed? Traump weel looz da elekshin so baedlee yor hed weel cpin!

    • Are you serious? You are clearly one of the non-educated people who know nothing about politics or possibly anything worthwhile. Did you get past second grade? I literally know 2nd graders who can spell better than you…who are not even native English speakers.

  6. Well for all you Democrats that want Hillary that’s ok but you’ll not see it happen sorry to tell you….And by the way .. all this info they share here about who voted ….silly dems don’t you know it is not the tally of dems that voted republican or independents that voted for dems or republicans… All this info is is Which party affiliation and How many of each voted.. By who is registered….Not broken down to who an individual voted for…. s My point is….Quit Bashing Tump supporters act like Human Beings because Come Election Day the map will favor Trump and All you trash talkers will be licking your wounds with your Criminal Corrupt Female you think was for you!

    • Jake…you are seriously delusional. Trump supporters are the lowest of the low. Just watch any interview with any of them…they very clearly give away just how uneducated and truly stupid they really are. Watch any home video of any of his rally’s and hear the disgusting, racist, sexist things that his supports say. Hell, just watch any speech or interview Trump himself has ever done and tell me if you hear one REAL strategy or idea given. “It’s going to be great…its great..I’m going to make things great.” HOW? Give us something…ONE thing that he will do and how he will do it.

      • We already know what Hillary will do, and that is have no regard for national security or the law. She thinks she is above the law.
        All she cares about is making her family and friends rich selling favors for donations to her corrupt foundation. The foundation is a front. The Clinton Foundation may do some good, but the pay to play negates any of the good.
        Do you really think she gives a shit about regular people?
        Hillary, not guilty you say?
        The whole world knew El Chapo was guilty before he ever saw a court room.

        • People saying Clintons made millions with their “foundation” and criticize her for it. Let’s pretend thats true and you hate people that do that; what about Trump? He made BILLIONS from screwing people over. BILLIONS not MILLIONS. When any of his businesses starts to fail; and he fails to save them… he declares bankruptcy to protect himself; while everyone get’s screwed. He just filed bankruptcy again recently… look how many times he filed it in the past, then see how much personal money he lost and why he is still worth billions.

          If he runs the US the way he runs his business… he’ll declare bankruptcy on the US before fixing anything for anyone.

      • I rarely see any nose ringed, HUUUGE earlobe pierced, purple haired, bare breastsed, dreadlocked, know it all name calling crybabies who are looking for a free ride and a personal trophy for just getting up in the morning, that are supporting Trump. Hillary supporters are mostly the kind of people who love to scream and curse, bully and demean when they have no facts to support their positions.

    • You’re right, Trump is going to walk away with this thing. So you don’t have to bother voting for him. Just stay home—-he’s got it in the bag. Ha ha

    • “Quit bashing Trump supporters” . . . oh, this is rich . . . jake, your candidate bashed John McCain who survived 6+ years as a POW, he repeatedly bashed Gold Star parents . . .Trump supporters blamed HRC supporters for being behind the burninig of the black church that had “Trump” sprayed on it . . .and you have the balls to tell HRC supporters to quit bashing Trump supporters. . . HRC people have gone high, as Donnie’s people have gone low . . . but enough is enough, and we’re mad as hell and not gonna’ take it anymore. We’ll see who’s licking wounds come Wednesday . . . but of course, when Trump looses he and all his supporters will be screaming all over these blogs how the election rigged.

    • Hey dolt look again eastern lower wisconsin took 30 seconds research. Try it sometime you won’t look like such a fool.

  7. This is bogus trash. This race is not between 2 candidates/parties. Stop pretending it is. Don’t try to persuade voters with your close race cr@p. These polls and guesses are all bs.If you can’t report real numbers don’t report them at all. This is not news.

  9. ahh well from here in Australia looking on I’m bemused at worries about who is going to vote and getting different demographics of voters out. We here don’t have a choice – you don’t vote in a Federal or State election you get fined! and our elections are on weekends – makes it easier to vote. Given all that if I had to vote I’d probably vote for Hillary yeah she’s been tricky but at least she’s realeased her tax returns.

    • Stay in Australia! You don’t understand US politics. We would love to tighten our voting rules but the Democrats continue to block states from doing so. I ‘d love it if we got fined for not voting! We allow Non citizens and dead people to vote here! No drivers license or ID it’s ok we trust you!! Just Stupid! This is something the American citizens need to correct! Also, a National security breech and cohorting emails are 10 times more hurtful to this country then one persons tax returns!!! Do you think that Hillary has paid taxes on the millions she received from foreign countries? No …she just knows how to hide it better. She’s a politician he’s not. What is the pay back for that money if she gets in the White House?? They didn’t just give it to her out of the goodness of their hearts! Trump has not been bought that’s why we like him. He funded most of his campaign on his own!

    • Gezza really wants a lying corrupt globalist married to a sexual predator in the white house and she wants the world to know it. Seriously? Tax returns is your biggest care. Hillary has broken law after law and it’s being proven beyond a doubt. She also visited Jeff Epsteins isle of pedophilia 6 times!!!! Her husband more than 20! But Trump’s tax return are more important? Talk about a low IQ voter, glad you’re in Aust. stay there and ruin your own country.

      Hillary also takes money from George Soros same guy who funded BLM and made is billions hurting other nations. Wake the F up.

  10. There is more dems voting in early voting because republicans are the ones working to keep the dem’s social programs going…

    • So…. the people who voted early, many on the weekend, are the ones with no jobs? While the “hard workin’ ‘pubs” are gonna go out and vote on Tuesday…. hmmm.

  11. Hillary is a Satanist and a pedophile. Have none of you read the Podesta emails? The FBI calls her the antichrist incarnate. Her secret service detail refers to her campaign plane as “broomstick one”. NO ONE likes this woman.

  12. The humiliating part is that the election is even close. Rest of the world, if you’re reading this. I apologize on behalf of America Please remember there a still a few smart educated rational people here. The teabag infestation isn’t over and will get worse before it gets better. Sorry

  13. The sad fact is that this election is even close. America is the laughing stock of the advanced world. Anti science evangelical teabagging lunatics are within a few votes of having the least qualified person in history to lead the world I apologetic to the rest of the world on Americas behalf

  14. This is the perfect opportunity to stand up and say, “NO! We do not accept our choices here”! And leave the presidential box blank on your ballots. If 30% of the voters leave it blank, it would send a pretty loud message. In the past, I’ll admit to voting for the lesser of the evils, which I know now, is wrong. In my opinion, neither of these clowns are competent enough for presidency. I do not feel comfortable with Trump or Clinton and WILL NOT BE VOTING for either of them. I encourage anyone out there, anyone who is weighing the lesser of the evils as I am, just leave the box blank – don’t choose someone else, don’t write in, George Carlin, (that would be funny) but instead just leave it blank. We have a chance to make a powerful statement here!

    • Instead of leaving blank- which no one knows about or counts- vote for a third party. #JohnsonWeld is on the ballot in all 50 states. Read into him beyond what the news lets you know. His FB page is a good place (under “Gary Johnson”)

  15. My problem with this is they talk like if the democrats have more, then suddenly its over. We have no idea who they voted for and there is always a big number under the Unaffiliated that the article completely ignores! Trump wins with independents by about 10 points! Why doesn’t that get talked about????

  16. Voted for Johnson and Weld even though I’m registered as a Republican. In fact, so did my fiancé and my mother, brother, and sister-in-law and her parents. There IS another option on the ballot in ALL 50 states!

  17. Aren’t we all sick of the political BS? We need the businessman to pull us out of our economical nightmare! We need a strong leader who will defend America. Trump trumps Clinton.

  18. Vote your own conscience and stop bashing one another. None of us walk in the other’s shoes. We all need to agree to disagree and be Americans regardless or we fall hard and for good.
