The practice of early voting typically favors Democrats. So imagine how confused the media is over the fact that early voting seems to be favoring Republicans right now. This is fantastic news.
The Daily Wire reports:
Early Voting Is Underway And It’s Favoring…Republicans?
“Early voting” began this week in most states, allowing enthusiastic members of both parties to cast their ballots far ahead of election day. But the practice, which typically favors Democrats, seems this year to indicate excitement on behalf of the GOP, particularly in states that could make the difference between a Democrat-controlled Senate and a Republican-controlled one.
NBC News reports that Republican early voters are “outpacing” Democrats in key states like “Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Tennessee and Texas,” and the difference is significant. In most states mentioned, at least 10% more Republicans have voted early than Democrats.
NBC’s data analytics center did not parse out whether the “early votes” were in-person or by absentee ballot. In-person early voting generally favors Democrats, largely because most “early voting” sites are located in major cities with large populations, where demand to vote is high and lines can get long on Election Day. Absentee ballots — particularly those from older Americans and military personnel stationed away from their home city — generally favor Republicans.
But as NBC News points out, the numbers look good for Republicans…
Conservatives can’t take any of this for granted. Be sure to get out and vote!
