The Democratic Tide Keeps Coming In — Even in Florida

As DHinMN notes for KOS:

First, let’s begin with actual results.  With 95% of the vote reported,
the current tallies show a total of 1,655,220 Democratic votes and
1,872,684 Republican votes.  Every Republican fought as hard as he
could for the win in Florida.  The Democrats—since the DNC won’t seat
Florida’s delegates because they flouted the schedule—didn’t really
compete in the state, with only Hillary Clinton making any campaign
appearances, and none of our folks spending any significant money.  Yet
with this possibly the make-or-break contest for the Republicans and a
probably meaningless "contest" for the Democrats, 47% of the people who
cast ballots in Florida voted for a Democrat.  Hillary Clinton received
over a 100,000 more votes than John McCain, Barack Obama got almost as
many votes as Mitt Romney, and John Edwards wasn’t far behind Rudy
Giuliani and Mike Huckabee.
