Ron DeSantis is pulling Hispanic voters away from the Democratic Party.
And they are a huge reason why he is dominating in Florida.
Now the Democratic Party is panicking as they continue to lose voters to Ron DeSantis.
No one scares the Left more than Ron DeSantis, and for good reason. They know that if he is the nominee in 2024, it will be practically impossible for them to defeat him.
That’s because DeSantis has built an extremely wide base of support, and has been the most effective warrior for conservative policies.
Now he is shifting the Hispanic vote hard to the right, and conservative Hispanics are becoming an enormous part of his base.
According to a poll from UNF, DeSantis leads his Democrat opponents by a margin of 55%-33% among Hispanic voters – a shocking margin considering that just 4 years ago, Hispanics were a key part of the Democrat coalition in Florida.
Giancarlo Sopo, a GOP activist in Florida, tweeted out the poll results in shock. “New poll out of Florida shows Ron DeSantis beating both of his potential Democratic rivals by +20 points among Hispanics. He is also at 21% among African Americans and winning Independents by 12.”
This is enormous for the conservatives and the GOP. If DeSantis is able to pull Hispanics to the right, and make them a part of the GOP coalition, it will doom the Democrats to electoral irrelevancy.
They won’t be able to win elections anymore, and they know it. That’s why they are panicking over DeSantis.
The reasons behind this shift make sense. Hispanic voters are very culturally conservative, by and large. They go to church in much higher numbers than white Americans.
Many of them also own small businesses, and were devastated by the COVID lockdowns and the restrictions pushed by people like Anthony Fauci.
Ron DeSantis has led the charge against Left-wing attempts to indoctrinate children, and he famously refused to lock down Florida even as Fauci and others pushed him to.
It stands to reason that Hispanic voters would appreciate DeSantis making moves like that.
The poll also shows that DeSantis truly is the driver behind this shift in Hispanic support. Other Republicans do not perform as well as he does.
According to Ed Morrissey from HotAir.com, “This may be only limited to DeSantis’ support, however. DeSantis gets a very strong approval-rating response from Hispanics, 59/36, with 50% strongly approving of his performance. In comparison, Senator Rick Scott only gets 44/40 and 33% strongly approving, and midterm incumbent Marco Rubio 45/42 with 31% strongly approving.”
The fact that DeSantis is able to be a conservative warrior against the Left, and still be widely beloved and popular, shows that it can be done.
It just has to be the right person leading the charge.
Some right-wing leaders have proven to have a difficult time winning elections, because people find them alienating.
But DeSantis has shown that, like Ronald Reagan, he can be both a conservative warrior and a beloved national leader.
And the Democrats are terrified of that.
