John Blaise Lent if you take the statistics and a flat way, it seems absurd. But, when you break Florida down into parts, you start to see it. Many states in the US are rather homogenous. But Florida is like five or 10 states in one. It’s a good testing ground for the nation. Just where I live, the part I don’t live in, is wealthier than Beverly Hills. But the part I do live in, I have KKK down the street. Yet you wouldn’t know it. Legal immigrant populations are often missed by media outlets – but like a blood sample, the voting patterns in various districts in Florida are statistically useful in determining much smaller voting blocks in different parts of the country. Some parts of Florida are nearly indistinguishable from New Jersey, yet other parts couldn’t tell apart from Tennesee.
