    Democrats have picked up 2.5 points per election over the last four presidential elections for a total of 10 point gain since 1988 in Collier County. Democrats are quickly gaining the district, which is one reason why this can be the year we win here.

    •  Collier County has been supporting (0+ / 0-)

      Republicans for president since 1952. The last time that a Democrat won the Naples area in a presidential race was in 1948. For some reason, after 1948, SW Florida swung hard to the right--and has stayed there since then.

      •  Yeah but (0+ / 0-)
        Democrats are gaining. We're not going to win Collier County itself I mean, but we're going to continue to pick up points, which could allow us to win the district this time.
