First odd thingThis is going to take time, so be patient. I have a lot of data to input into a spreadsheet, and I'm working out how to manipulate the data to find what I want. But let me give you a tidbit.
So far, I've done a couple counties, working in alphabetical order. This includes 2 Democrat strong holds (Alachuha and Broward) and a Republican (Brevard, my home county). I also did Miami-Dade because I was curious regarding them taking so long to close the polls, and reporting late.
So far, what I am finding is that Romney matched the McCain numbers in all the counties, 100% to 103%. This includes Broward County.
The exception is Miami-Dade. Romney hit 92% of McCain's number, with a drop of 29,900 votes. Obama also over performed picking up 39,000 votes over 2008. This is a 70,000 vote swing, and swings the election as we stand today.
Now Miami-Dade is next door to Broward, but Broward has a larger percentage of Democrats. So even though Miami has more Republicans than Broward, less of them turned out to vote.
Meanwhile Obama matched his 2008 numbers in Broward, but dramatically over-performed in Miami-Dade 101% to 108%. This despite the fact that Broward has a much higher percentage of Democrats, 53% to 44%. The counties are about the same size and had almost identical participation rates.
I have a lot more counties to enter, so this will take awhile. But I wanted to give you an idea of what I am seeing so far.
