We’ve known for a long time that countless Americans are fleeing blue states to greener pastures.
People are leaving high-tax states like California and New York for conservative-run states.
One of the most popular destinations? The Sunshine State.
But many locals grew worried. With all these people coming to Florida, will they start voting Democrat?
They could create the same problems in Florida that exist in New York and elsewhere.
According to Gov. DeSantis, however, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
From Daily Wire:
Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told Fox News during a town hall event Wednesday night that people who are moving to Florida are “overwhelmingly” registering as Republicans, including former Democrats who fled blue states…
“And I also have come across a lot of people who, quite frankly, were Democrats. The lockdowns turned them into Republicans.”
This is good news for anyone who fears their conservative state is about to turn red, due to an influx of newcomers.
According to what DeSantis said, most people that are moving to Florida are “overwhelmingly” Republican. And that those who were Democrats are switching sides.
This shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, if you think about it.
Democrats who voted for their leaders are the last people to admit they were wrong. And why would they leave their home state–to a state known for being deeply conservative?
But conservatives from New York and California? Yeah, they have good reason to flee to a place like Florida.
Even liberals who move to a conservative state need to stop and think about why they’re doing it.
They left their old states because of high taxes, crime, a lack of jobs, and expensive housing. Maybe the reason things are so much better in FL is because it’s not run by greedy leftists?
I think DeSantis is right. Americans are coming to terms with the fact that Democrat states botched the lockdowns.
They locked down their states and doomed their economies. But most stats are showing did no better in terms of cases and losses.
Meanwhile, red states thrived, keeping their economies open while still battling it.
The difference is obvious. And Americans see it.
- The Florida governor revealed that newcomers to Florida are overwhelmingly registering as Republicans.
- DeSantis even said that former Democrats are changing their party.
- He attributes Democrat-run states’ lockdown failures as a major reason.
