Turnout was key to Florida election results

  • Publicado em 7 Nov 2018
  • This is the third election in a row that Democrats have lost in a Florida election within one percentage point, and they'll be looking at why Andrew Gillum could not get over that hump. The Senate race is also a close one between incumbent Bill Nelson and former governor Rick Scott. WFOR political correspondent Jim DeFede joins CBSN with details.

    Rick Scott reduced early voting days it was one of the first things he did when he first took office . Thats why people have to stand inline to vote .They closed down polling places in minority areas to reduce democratic votes . They removed people from the voting rolls . I WOULD LIKE TO THINK WITH ALL THE TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE THESE DAYS VOTING WOULD BE EASIER . But instead its getting harder to vote . Millions of people are suppose to take off work to go and vote instead of moving voting day to saturday . We have electronic fingerprint technology now we could vote from our phones . We still cant count votes accurately but a bank keeps track of your money down to the penny

    Whoever it was that was on the phone made it sound as if there is just wide Chasm between one candidate in the next candidate which was far from the fact the fact of the matter is that it was extremely close both sides got out the vote both sides did fantastic only one side was going to win regardless of whether it was one vote a thousand votes or 10,000 votes anything less than 3% is a statistical tie

    Why did Gillium concede so quickly -- what was the hurry?
    The race was simply too close to not warrant an automatic recount but he himself should have requested a recount.
    The gubernatorial race in Georgia was not as close and as you can see the female in the race refused 2 concede and may still believe she won but she said something very telling she's going to wait until every vote is counted.
    As far as the senate race in Florida I think it's pretty clear that the sitting senator didn't really care which way it went he did his time he served his country and his state and so win or lose he's alright with it and Scott just decided if the guy is not going to concede he'll just take it -- Scott will be really really embarrassed if a recount results in his having to eat crow

      Florida law requires less than 0.5% margin for a recount, so the governor race is ineligible.

      Worst state? I voted red (disclaimer), but why would Florida be "the worst" from a Left-leaning perspective? I mean, I know it's certainly not as blue as you would like, but there are way redder states out there.

    They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. When are the Democracts going to realize that arranging protests aren't going to win them any elections unless they VOTE?

      More importantly, how should Democrats connect with Latino communities and voters? 60% of eligible voters are Women, Blacks,Latinos and young people. That is a done deal. As more and more time goes by the old White people die off and the demographics change to that target voter population.

      I don't know if florida is the worst, definitely not in the top three though (have you ever been to maine?) I live in florida and I travel the country (alot). Even with the rednecky upper third of the state, florida is nice... We have our issues like any other state.. But outside of politics florida is beautiful.. I'm left leaning, but even I knew gillum wasn't gonna win... He put up a big fight but florida is a red state through and through it is what it is.
