Gimenez squeaked through.
There are 1,221,592 registered voters in Miami-Dade County. Only 199,862 — 16.36% — voted today. Numbers like that make believers in a small-R republican form of government shake their heads.
Gimenez won by 4,375 votes, about 51% of the votes cast. A clear win but no landslide.
Look at it another way, that’s about 0.358 % — about one third of a percent — of the registered voters in the County.
Numbers like that make political activists think their work has meaning.
