The rumors are Democrats do not plan on putting in any time, effort, or money into the Florida governor’s race. That seems to be the first smart thing they have done in the Biden error. As of right now, DeSantis leads all comers by wide margins. many people think he should run for president but I don’t. He is young and a Trump/DeSantis ticket could not only win but could lead to 12 straight years of Republican control of the White House.
That would be twelve years of futility trying to impose socialism on our great country. And I think we all agree that the Trump/DeSantis team would right the ship of state, meaning down-ticket elections could swing heavily to the Republican’s favor. Remember what happened under Reagan. He served one term and then won reelection taking 49 states.
Desantis’ closest opponent is former governor, former Republican, former Independent Charlie Crist who is 8 points behind DeSantis 51-43. He beats Nikki Fried who called him a Nazi 53-42. And he is ahead of State Senator Annette Taddeo gets walloped by DeSantis by 16 points, 53 to 37 percent. His approval/disapproval rating is 53-43. That makes him King of the Mountain.
DeSantis, like Trump, is a leader and not a follower and neither man is afraid of the hatestream media. The media cannot sway either one of them from back-peddling on their decisions. Both have been savaged by the media but in the end, both have been proven right time and time again. They have iron for a backbone.
The poll also found that 53 percent of Floridians approve of the job DeSantis is doing, while only 43 percent disapprove.
This is a remarkable turnaround for a governor who, in 2018, barely eked out a victory against disgraced former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. More than eight million votes were cast in that widely anticipated election, and DeSantis squeaked out a victory by just 33,000 votes, or 0.4 percent.
Granted, there is plenty of time between now and November, but for a known quantity like Crist, a former governor himself, to be eight points behind… That’s a big deal. Another big deal is DeSantis safely polling over 50 percent against all comers, which is where an incumbent needs to be. As his own known quantity, people have made up their minds about DeSantis, and barring some sort of catastrophe or mind-bending scandal, are unlikely to change their minds.
By any objective measure, DeSantis has done a superb job of governing and growing the GOP. He’s basically Donald Trump without all the personal baggage and petty, ego-driven flaws.
