TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Democrats still have a voter registration advantage over Republicans, but it’s getting slimmer. Democrats have just more than 5.3 million voters registered for the Nov. 3 election, compared to nearly 5.2 million for Republicans. That's according to statistic released by the Florida Department of State. The overall difference is about 134,000 in favor of Democrats. But that’s down from a roughly 327,000 advantage Democrats had in the last presidential election, when President Donald Trump carried Florida over Hillary Clinton by a mere 1.2 percentage points. Florida's 29 electoral college votes are considered crucial in this year’s contest between Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.
