The November Midterm elections are less than five months out.
Democrats are facing an uphill battle to maintain control of Congress.
And now Ron DeSantis just picked up an endorsement that is bad news for national Democrats in November.
Ron DeSantis is facing his first re-election as Governor in November.
Right now, polls show DeSantis handily defeating both of his potential Democrat opponents in a head-to-head matchup.
DeSantis is also crushing the Democrats in fundraising, raising more than $120 million for his re-election efforts.
But Ron DeSantis has a much bigger goal for November than just getting re-elected to another term as Governor.
He also set a goal of winning by such a large margin in November that Florida would move from a “swing state” to a solid “red state.”
And Ron DeSantis just picked up an endorsement that could help him achieve his goal of turning Florida red.
On Wednesday, The Libre Initiative Action, a Hispanic organization in Florida, fully endorsed Ron DeSantis’ re-election campaign.
“The Libre Initiative Action is a group committed to working with anyone to advance positive policies that promote the wellbeing of the Hispanic community,” a press release announcing the endorsement read. “In support of Gov. Ron DeSantis, LIBRE Action will knock on doors, make phone calls, and place digital ads, among other efforts. Governor Ron DeSantis is our candidate for re-election.”
This could spell doom for national Democrats in November.
For years, Democrats have counted on Hispanic voters to give them the upper hand in key states around the country, including Hispanic-heavy South Florida.
During Donald Trump’s Presidency, Hispanic voters began leaving the Democrat Party and switching over to vote Republican.
And the Hispanic drift to the GOP is showing no signs of slowing down.
Republican Mayra Flores recently defeated Democrat Dan Sanchez by eight points in the heavily Hispanic 34th District of Texas, becoming the first Mexican-born woman in Congress and the first Republican to represent the Rio Grande Valley in roughly 150 years.
Current polling also shows Hispanics are voting more and more Republican.
In March, a Wall Street Journal poll showed Republicans led Democrats by nine points with Hispanic voters.
And a recent Quinnipiac poll found Republicans ahead by three points.
Biden’s approval rating is also tanking among Hispanic voters, with a Gallup poll showing his support has decreased by 21 points among Hispanic voters since he assumed office.
But while Joe Biden’s approval rating is tanking among Hispanics, Ron DeSantis’ is steadily increasing.
In March, 46 percent of Hispanics had a favorable opinion of DeSantis, compared to 39 percent in December, an increase of seven points from December to March.
Florida has one of the largest percentages of Hispanic voters in America.
If Ron DeSantis helps bring enough Hispanic voters to the Republican Party, it could help him achieve his goal of turning Florida into a solid red state.
And that should terrify Democrats.
