The state of Florida has been trending Republican for months and just reached a major milestone.
Republican voters now outnumber Democrats by 200,000.
It’s probably now safe to say that Florida is a truly red state.
Breitbart News reports:
Florida Republicans Now Outnumber Democrats by 200,000 Voters
Registered Florida Republicans now outnumber Democrats by 200,000 voters — doubling their lead since March — the Republican Party of Florida recently announced.
Republicans in Florida made history yet again this summer, as Republicans continue to outpace Democrats in gaining new voters in the Sunshine State. Historically, Democrats have held the clear advantage, but the tide began to noticeably turn over the last two years, as Americans sought shelter from ongoing coronavirus restrictions and vaccine mandates, thrusting the Sunshine State into the spotlight.
Unlike blue states, DeSantis refused to implement a mask mandate and reopened schools and businesses early on, emphasizing the need for Americans to make their own decisions. That approach continued as President Biden and Democrats attempted to force vaccines on the American people.
All the while, DeSantis and Florida Republicans adamantly opposed such mandates and fought against them. And at the end of 2021, Republicans officially overtook Democrats in terms of voter registration in Florida.
“When I got elected governor, we had 280,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans in the state of Florida,” DeSantis said during a press conference in Seminole in November 2021.
