Throughout the history of the United States of America, there has NEVER been a time when there have been more registered Republicans than Democrats residing in Florida.
“When I got elected governor, we had 280,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans in the state of Florida,” DeSantis announced on November 5, 2021. “Today, and it will probably be fully publicized very soon, today for the first time in the history of Florida, we’ve now overtaken Democrats. There are more registered Republicans in Florida than Democrats.”
DeSantis attributes the change to people that value freedom and common sense moving to Florida from blue states.
“From the very beginning, we backed the people that wear the uniform, and what happens is you see some of these places when they defund or take the funding away, you’ve seen crime absolutely skyrocket,” DeSantis said. “Now even places like Seattle are scurrying to try to figure out how we now fund police because they knew how catastrophic that was. So we never did that. And I think some people are looking, it’s like, people can put up sometimes with higher taxes, but if you don’t have safety, public safety, people just aren’t tolerating it.”
