The radical Left is determined to take down Ron DeSantis.
And for good reason.
Because this surprising new poll out of South Florida shows why Joe Biden and the Democrats are terrified of Ron DeSantis.
Hispanic voters have traditionally been in the back pocket of the Democrat Party.
For instance, Barack Obama won 71 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2012.
However, this changed during Donald Trump’s time in office, with Hispanic strongholds in places like Texas and South Florida shifting heavily toward the Republican Party during the 2020 Presidential election.
A post-election Pew survey found that Donald Trump won 38 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2020.
And the trend of Hispanics shifting towards the Republican Party is continuing on into 2022.
According to one Wall Street Journal poll of a hypothetical rematch between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, Trump received 43 percent of the Hispanic vote in the poll.
But Donald Trump isn’t the only Republican who is receiving more support from Hispanics.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has also significantly increased his favorability ratings among Hispanic voters in South Florida.
For years, Miami-Dade County was known as a Democrat stronghold.
In 2018, despite losing the state-wide election, Ron DeSantis’ opponent, Angrew Gillum, won Miami-Dade County by 21 percent.
Hillary Clinton won Miami-Dade by over 30 percent in 2016, and Joe Biden won it by 7 percent in 2020.
But a new poll by Bendixen and Amandi just found that Ron DeSantis enjoys a seven-point margin of favorability (48-41 percent) in Miami-Dade County, which represents a 28-point swing since the 2018 election.
Compared to Joe Biden’s seven-point victory in 2020, DeSantis has earned a 14-point swing in two years in Democrat-heavy Miami-Dade County.
The poll also found that 51 percent of Hispanic voters view Joe Biden negatively, with the number climbing to 59 percent among Cuban Hispanics.
Only 37 percent of Cubans have a favorable view of Joe Biden, compared to DeSantis and Trump, who both hold a 55 percent or above approval rating among Cubans.
“I think the poll confirms what we’ve seen,” pollster Fernand Amandi told the Miami Herald. “There’s a cleavage in the Hispanic vote between Cuban and non-Cuban Hispanics . . . For Democrats to enjoy the type of margins that they’ve historically been accustomed to in Miami-Dade, they need to go back to basics.”
Amandi is referring to the Democrats’ massive drift toward pushing nothing but pure identity-politics, which several polls have shown is the reason why Hispanic voters are moving towards the Republican Party.
If Democrats lose the Hispanic vote, it will be an even bigger bloodbath at the polls for the Party in November than expected.
And this poll showing Hispanic voters lining up behind Ron DeSantis is terrifying to Democrats nationwide.
