Florida Inching Ever Closer to Official Blue State Status
In fact, Florida is just a wee bit a way from becoming true blue. Gallup interviewed 8,267 Floridians and surmised that 47% of us are registered Democrats or regularly vote that way. Only 38% of us checked Republican on our voter registration or might as well have. That's a 9 point advantage for Democrats. 10 points would have put us in the "Solid Democratic" league.
This shouldn't be read as a prediction for upcoming Presidential races though. "Solid Democratic" states like West Virginia, Arkansas, and Missouri went for McCain/Palin. Though, party affiliation doesn't always translate into presidential votes, and those states do all have Democratic Governors.
