Reports that Trump Lost Support in Florida’s Villages Are Greatly Exaggerated
Last week, the Associated Press published a story, without any real data, that Trump’s support at The Villages is waning. They interviewed a handful of people and declared the retirement community a warning sign for Trump, that he’s losing the senior vote.
Sumter County, home of The Villages retirement community, reported early votes this evening. 71.2% of the early votes were cast by registered Republicans. 16.1% cast by Democrats.

While it is only the second day of Florida early voting, a 50-point advantage is a good sign for the President.
Numbers are out for Sumter County The Villages, Florida. GOP – 69.7%, Dems – 17.1%. Uh, Oh! Looks like Biden’s gonna get destroyed in Florida. Poor @Redistrict— DonderoE (@dondero_e) October 20, 2020

Dux. This is a HUGE embarrassment for Dave Wasserman. He Tweeted giddily on Oct. 10 Trump couldn’t win Sumter County The Villages enough. Sure sign he’d lose Florida. Wasserman said unless Trump got 62% in Sumter EVs, he’d lose. It’s GOP 69.58%!!!— DonderoE (@dondero_e) October 20, 2020
