I work with demographic data a lot. The 2016 election numbers in Florida are not any sort of reassurance because of the voters that stayed home the last time around. With city populations increasing and rural populations declining, all the dems need to do is get the vote out this time to swing this state. "Trump" and "NRA" are toxic to the undecided as much as they are to the other side.

I agree with the others that are warning us about complacency. The other side learned that lesson in 2016.

Hammer has been getting smoked recently. Like certain members here, she is living in the past.
She is no friend to Floridians these days it seems. Definitely a case of better days behind her. I thank her for her contributions and urge her to retire silently.

Look, I am an oldish fart myself, but even I have the sense to realize that this Florida is not the Florida of old. The same old tactics are no longer surefire.

Latest polling has Republican voters enraged, especially men, about the Kavanaugh hearings and Dem tactics. They are expecting a record turnout for midterms and a margin is building against the Democrats.
