Florida 2016 Primary Republican Turnout

Admittedly, I have been slacking in writing. This is due to workload and frankly falling off the writing wagon.

I will try and do better, but in the meantime, I was asked to look at Republican Turnout in Florida.  I only explored those voters currently registered in Florida that voted in the 2016 primary.

I chose to look at the turnout by Florida DMA – and you see the critical nature of the heralded I-4 corridor.  Nearly 1 out of every 2 Republican primary votes came from the Tampa/Orlando DMAs.  On the flip side, there is the poor old Gainesville DMA.  (No wonder we are ignored and don’t get to see many cool TV commercials.)

Next on tap is to project the anticipated turnout for 2018 – that is a little more involved and not for publication.

Until next time, enjoy!
