Republican voters outnumber Democrat voters in Florida, ensures Republican power for years to come

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has done amazing things in the Sunshine State. The best is yet to come as a key metric just flipped in his favor.

DeSantis recently announced that the GOP has overtaken Democrats in registered voters, Fox News reported. The Republican governor took a victory lap while speaking at the National Conference of State Legislatures on Friday.

“When I got elected governor we had 280,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans in the state of Florida,” DeSantis said to the crowd. “Today, and it will probably be fully publicized very soon, for the first time in the history of Florida we have overtaken Democrats. There are more registered Republicans in Florida than Democrats.”

DeSantis credited the state’s lack of COVID-19 restrictions for a great migration. He even quipped that the New Jersey gubernatorial race would have flipped for the Republican candidate had so many New Jersey residents not fled to his state.

He also took a swipe at other politicians who preside over chaotic, crime-ridden cities and states. “Once these areas go deep blue they get destroyed,” DeSantis said. “How many places that are deep blue are well governed in this country? Can you name me some?” he said.

Violent crime is on the rise in America’s cities and it’s true that most of them are run by Democrats, The Hill reported. The recent trend to push for defunding police coupled with the so-called Broken Window theory — whereby turning a blind eye to minor crime encourages more and larger ones — makes blue cities more dangerous.
“Tell me where you can find this success story of ‘woke progressivism’ imposed on a people,” DeSantis quipped. “I don’t see it.”
What’s happening in Florida should encourage Republicans throughout the U.S. who seem too afraid to implement a boldly conservative agenda. It’s time the mealy-mouthed centrists move over and allow real conservatives to take the reins — and they will surely attract more Republican voters in the process.
