Why the state is significant:
Florida is quite possibly the king of general election swing states. See-sawing between Republicans and Democrats in presidential election cycles (everyone remembers the famous Florida recount of 2000), it is always one of the most important electoral battlegrounds.Just how competitive is the Sunshine State? In 2012, President Obama defeated Republican Mitt Romney by less than one percentage point there -- the narrowest margin of any state.
As of January 2016, there were 325,806 more registered Democrats than Republicans in Florida, making the totals: 4,209,039 registered Republicans and 4,534,845 registered Democrats.The state is home to a large population of Cuban immigrants -- an influential and highly-courted voting bloc.
