Early Vote Estimate - Clinton Leads Trump In Florida, Iowa, Nevada

Slate has teamed up with VoteCastr to provide estimates on how Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are doing with early voting.

Florida is a key state. Trump has other states to win in order to win the election, but that doesn’t happen if he does not win Florida. And according to VoteCastr it is not looking too good right now. Two other states of importance are Iowa and Nevada. Clinton leads in those as well.

Florida
2016 Early Vote: 3,685,667 early votes, 41.8 percent of total votes cast in 2012
Clinton: 1,780,573 early votes, 42.0 percent of Obama’s 2012 total vote total
Trump: 1,678,848 early votes, 40.3 percent of Romney’s 2012 total vote total
2012 Results: Obama won, 50.0 percent to 49.1 percent

Iowa
2016 Early Vote: 563,444 early votes, 35.6 percent of total votes cast in 2012
Clinton: 273,188 early votes, 33.2 percent of Obama’s 2012 total vote total
Trump: 244,739 early votes, 33.5 percent of Romney’s 2012 total vote total
2012: Obama won, 52.1 percent to 46.5 percent

Nevada
2016 Early Vote: 593,964 early votes, 58.5 percent of total votes cast in 2012
Clinton: 276,461 early votes, 52.0 percent of Obama’s 2012 total vote total
Trump: 269,255 early votes, 58.1 percent of Romney’s 2012 total vote total
2012: Obama won, 52.3 percent to 45.7 percent

None of this is an indication of who will win. It’s just a gauge of how well the candidates are doing. Slate has a page where they explain how it all works. 

It’s pretty detailed so take a look.
