This is surprising: Early voters in Florida are giving John McCain a 4 point advantage over Barack Obama, and McCain is leading by 20 points in absentee ballots already tabulated. Democrats are turning out in larger numbers than Republicans, as expected – but they are not all voting for Obama.

As the Dems for McCain crowd has opined, there are some lingering bad feelings about the Obama campaign’s tactics in the primaries, and paybacks can be hell.

Or maybe all those Democrats who happen to own or work for small businesses are getting wind of Obama’s tax hikes for over a million small companies which might just be the beginning.

Whatever the reason, this is great news.
