    Early voting update: Black vote declining with 24.4 million ballots cast

    A dip in African-American turnout has knocked Democratic early voting numbers off their 2012 pace in key battleground states like North Carolina.

    The trend is also evident in early vote data from other swing states that could play key roles in deciding the election, including Florida and Georgia.

    More Latino voters, however, are among the more than 24.4 million American voters who have already cast their ballots -- including 12.4 million in battleground states -- according to a CNN analysis of the latest early voting numbers.

    Republicans appear to be in better position than they were in previous presidential elections in Florida, Iowa, North Carolina and Ohio, while Democrats have improved their standing in Colorado and Arizona.

    CNN has partnered with Catalist, a data company that works with progressive candidates and groups, to receive detailed early vote return information this year. Catalist's voter list connects returned ballots with demographic and registration information, such as party registration, gender and age, and allows a closer look at who has already cast a vote.

    These are not results -- ballots aren't tallied until Election Day. But the findings provide clues on who is voting and which party is turning out to vote. And while the numbers track voters' party affiliations, not all Democrats are voting for Hillary Clinton, and not all Republicans are supporting Donald Trump.

    In other words, these are not results, and they have no idea if 100% voted for Trump, 63% voted for Stein or what.

    They put a lot of faith in that "not all Republicans are supporting Donald Trump" meme. The problem is it disguises reality. As a percentage, far more Democrats who are not voting for Broomhillary ARE voting for Trump than the other way around. And far fewer are going to vote for either of them from her side of the aisle than from his.

    That's not to say he has it sewn up, though I feel more and more like he does. But it means disgusted voters are hurting her more than they're hurting him. If anything he benefits in a way that wouldn't have been possible if the Democrits hadn't rigged the primary and Bernie stood a chance because he's getting a fair bit of those disgusted voters from the Demogogue Democrat side.

    Over 30% of all registered voters in Florida have already voted either early or by absentee. In my travels today I have seen many Trump signs, no Hillary signs, and 3 signs urging voters to vote for John Ratzenberger, actor who played the Cliff Clavin character on Cheers. I have no doubt that John is better presidential material but voting for him would just help elect Mrs. W. J. Clinton.
