(TELESUR) – The candidate who wins in this state will receive 29 votes in the electoral college, which ultimately decides the outcome of the presidential elections.
The Democratic Party has strongly defended vote-by-mail voting ballots as a way to prevent COVID-19 infections. Initially, President Donald Trump criticized that option, saying that the results could be manipulated. However, due to the problems his candidacy faces, he ended up recommending voting by mail.
Florida is one state that can tilt the electoral result in favor of one or the other candidate. So far, Democratic candidate Joe Biden has a 7.5-point lead over Trump in voting intentions nationwide. In Florida, however, that advantage is reduced to 3.9 points.
