Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are both campaigning in Florida on Tuesday and there's a good reason. Not only is it the top battleground prize, but Florida is also a major early voting state.
By election day, more than half of the state's voters will have already cast a ballot, either by mail or at the voting booth. In-person early voting opened this week, and political analysts have already begun parsing the numbers.
Florida journalists reported Tuesday that 1.6 million ballots had been cast. Republicans have a narrow lead in mail-in ballots -- 42% to 40%, according to the Miami Herald. That's most of the early voting so far, about 1.3 million ballots.
