Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not good news from Florida.  It seems once again it's just too much trouble for (supposed) Democrats to get their lazy asses off the couch, go out of the air conditioning, and vot.

'We've got to stop the bleeding': Democrats sound alarm in Miami

Democrats are sounding the alarm about weak voter turnout rates in Florida's biggest county, Miami-Dade, where a strong Republican showing is endangering Joe Biden's chances in the nation's biggest swing state.

No Democrat can win Florida without a huge turnout and big winning margins here to offset losses elsewhere in the state. But Democrats are turning out at lower rates than Republicans and at lower rates than at this point in 2016, when Hillary Clinton won by 29 percentage points here and still lost the state to Donald Trump.

Emphasis added.

Fortunately Biden doesn't need Florida.

I could be wrong, but I think people are making too much of this.

That said, if it lights a fire, I'm all for it:


Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
