More than half of the counties in Florida – the battlefield that must be won for President Trump – have turned his interests even further, allowing him to win the state at a rate almost three times the difference from 4 year.
About a third of counties vote more Democratic. Joseph R. Biden Jr did well in Pinellas, home of St. Petersburg, which twice backed Barack Obama for the presidency before voting for Mr. Trump in 2016. Mr. Biden ousted a large district – Duval, Jacksonville’s hometown – that Mr. Trump won by margin in 2016.
However, Mr. Biden’s profits were not enough to make up for the votes he lost in populous Miami-Dade county, compared with the profits of Hillary Clinton four years ago.
Mr. Biden is underperforming in many Hispanic areas, especially the Cuban-American communities in Miami-Dade County, where Trump has overwhelming support.
Circles are the size of the total number of votes. Exact data are not available for some counties.
The rise in Cuban-American voters boosted Mr. Trump’s total vote in the district, where he received nearly 200,000 more votes over four years ago.
