No TRUMP is NOT leading in early voting in florida!!

Do you know why that is? because early voting has started yet in florida!!! i swear i need to sit out this election i cant keep arguing with these right wing trump idiots. I honestly feel like im losing brain cells. There re-tweeting the same bs about Florida releasing its absentee ballot requests using the 6 point difference and writing that in the articles as trump winning the early vote count. You know i honestly dont blame the twitters because its easy to get misinform about your candidate and running away with it. BUT HOW the hell do the right wing publication go with this crap. i know briebart is a multi million dollar company. Do they have not one single fact check editor working there? Finding out when you can actually vote in Florida early literally takes a 5 second google search. sigh..

4. It's inconceivable but some people don't want facts

The right wants pablum to make them feel better about their own opinions. They aren't going to google something that tells them what they want to hear. They aren't going to check Snopes because they don't like facts. I've given up on them.

It backfires though, when they get the big surprise on election night... as when Romney lost.

Since I'm in Florida, I think I'll post on my wall about the date early voting starts.

5. The number is actually absentee ballots requested

None are counted as returned yet.

But yes, that large a gap is concerning... It's usually a measure of the "ground game" which I would assume Trump almost entirely lacks

8. i will

say the state that looked the worst for me was iowa. the early absentee numbers compared to 2008 and 2012 look really bad. Im honestly not great at math but if those numbers hold up and just compare them to the previous election. Literally the news station will call this state after the polls close if these numbers turn out to be true. i cannot for a life of me see how a state that voted for obama by 10 points can turn out like this? did all the right wingers from tennesse move to iowa or something?

incidentally i had a girlfriend from iowa when i was younger whose entire family still lives there.. all voted for kerry and obama.
