Trump Gained 200K New Miami Voters In The Past Four Years, But Democrat Levine-Cava Elected Mayor

There’s good news and bad news for both major political parties in yesterday’s Miami-Dade election, with nearly all votes now counted.

Donald Trump made a strong showing in Miami-Dade’s 2020 presidential election (although he still lost the county) the results show.

With all precincts reporting, 532,409 Miami-Dade residents voted for Trump in yesterday’s election, while 617,201 voted for Biden. The margin of victory was 53.31% for Biden, versus 45.98% for Trump.

That is a drastic change compared to the 2016 election, which Trump lost badly in Miami.

In 2016, just 333,999 in Miami-Dade voted for Trump, compared to 624,146 for Hillary Clinton. That equals a 59% increase in Miami Trump voters in just four years.

Broward and Palm Beach didn’t change as much. Both Trump and Biden made numeric gains in those counties compared to the 2016 Clinton-Trump election due to population growth and higher turnout, but the margin remained similar to what it was four years ago.

The good news for Democrats: Daniella Levine-Cava was elected Miami-Dade mayor by a 54% to 46% margin.

In other results, the Bjarke Ingels-designed Marina Park development proposal in South Beach appears to have been defeated by a slim margin. Although two out of three questions relating to the proposal were approved, a third question was defeated by a 51-49 margin, and the project cannot move forward.

Hopefully since she’s left of center, she expands public transit and cycling lanes along with parks. Hopefully.

Cycling lanes and parks? I can show you many cycling lanes in Miami that no one is crazy enough to ride a bike in… and there are many parks right now in Miami that no one even goes to.

That’s why we need better lanes and cleaner parks for the residents and not the homeless!

Better lanes?.. useless they’re concrete walls, drivers in Miami will run you over.. and I’ve seen very clean parks in Miami because very few people go to most of them.

Then we need less drivers and better drivers. The future is less cara anyways. And about the parks, people don’t go because they are full of homeless people. They need to be cleaned up and made safe for the residents

What is it with some people’s obsession with bike lanes? They are still an impractical mode of transportation to get to work. More bike lanes will not make a dent in solving traffic issues.

I don’t know much about the new Miami-Dade County mayor, Daniella Levine-Cava, I did not vote for her; however, she won. The way our country is supposed to work is: somebody wins and somebody loses. After the winner is elected, we are all supposed to do all we can to help her/him be successful. I for one consider her my mayor. I for one also think that the most important thing Miami-Dade needs is a complete heavy rail transportation system. No metropolitan area can truly be world class without such a system. Such a system is expensive; however, it is not necessary to construct the system all at one time. Design the system and begin the construction as the money becomes available, but do it first class. This means no buses (most people will not ride them) and nothing a grade level (no stops except at terminals).

Suing to stop counting ballots, declaring premature victory, suggesting legally cast ballots are appearing by “magic” to shrink the margins… SMH.

The Miami-Dade county mayoral election is supposed to be NON-PARTISAN (ie. the candidates on the ballot do not have a (D) or (R) next to their name) so there shouldn’t be an acknowledgement that this was a W for democrats. People need so start making the effort to pause the hyper-partisan BS

Since you mention it, the truth is, if I knew she was a (D) I wouldn’t have voted for her like I did! Oops!

I didn’t vote for her but I am in favor of plans to expand transit. As long as she doesn’t defund the police and open up the prisons then I’ll be fine. But expect a recall from county residents if she starts proposing property tax increases. Especially considering Floridians voted for a 15 min wage in the middle of a recession.

Just something to think about.

True.. but if there’s an “R” by their name they’re going to get the most votes in Florida.

Look at those who are rioting! They don’t fit the stereotype, do they? Also, how do you know who is democrat and who is repugnants? It is what trump wants, encourage chaos, pit one group against the other, and then he comes in as the savior and takes the credit, while blaming democrats. It’s like setting a fire and then becoming the hero by putting it out. SICK PERSONALITY!!
