As of this morning, more than 1.125m Floridians have cast ballots in the GOP presidential preference primary.
Here’s the breakdown by race/ethnicity:
971.6k white Republicans have already voted; that’s 86.3% of the total votes cast in the GOP PPP. Thus far, 112.6k Republican Hispanics have voted, or 10% of the total.
Overall, 24.5% of registered Republicans (active and inactive) have already voted.
The overall 1.125m Republican ballots cast to date includes 484.6k voters who did not participate in the 2012 PPP, or 43% of the vote total. Nearly 85% of these voters who didn’t bother (as well as some who weren’t registered) to vote in 2012 in the primary are white.
The overall GOP total votes cast also includes 3.5k of the party’s 307k inactive voters; 73% are white and 22% are Hispanic.
One last demographic breakdown for the GOP voters who’ve voted early in-person or by absentee ballot: they’re old. Nearly 64% of votes cast by registered Republicans in Florida’s PPP are at least 60 years of age. Slightly more than 4% — only 46k voters — are under 30. Of that younger GOP crowd, 80% are white.
