"We're thrilled at the record turnout so far," said Democratic Party of Florida spokesman Eric Jotkoff. "It's a clear indication that Democrats want to elect Barack Obama and Democrats up and down the ballot so that we can start creating good jobs, rebuilding our economy and getting our nation back on track."
One explanation for the disparity could be Cuban-Americans who have been working hard to warn Floridians about the similarities between Obama's rise to power and that of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.
