Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot with their divisive rhetoric.
They’re setting Republicans up for a major victory.
A top Democrat made a massive error that put a smile on Ron DeSantis’ face.
Florida gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist (D) is alienating voters by calling half the people in his state “haters,” supporting President Joe Biden after he called Republicans “semi-fascists,” and picked a teachers union leader as his running mate.
Crist defended the President on Monday when he demonized members of the opposite political as “semi-fascists.”
Crist stated on CNN that Joe Biden was just being “honest” when he branded “MAGA Republicans” as a bunch of semi-fascists who are threats to the very rule of law.
“I think what’s important is to state the facts as they are,” Crist said. “He’s gotta be honest and express what he feels in his heart and his soul, and I think that’s probably exactly what he did.”
Crist has gone so far as to state that he doesn’t want the vote of any of the state’s four million Republicans.
“Those who support the governor should stay with him and vote for him, and I don’t want your vote,” Crist said earlier this week. “If you have that hate in your heart, keep it there!”
“I want the vote of the people of Florida who care about our state: good Democrats, good independents, good Republicans,” Crist added. “Unify with this ticket. Unify with Val Demings and Charlie Crist. Unify with us. Those who are haters? You’re going to go off in your own world, and you better get right.”
In 2018, DeSantis earned 4,076,186 votes and many Republicans have moved to the state in the four years. For the first time in the state’s history there are now more Republicans than Democrats registered to vote.
Impact Research released polling that found Gov. Ron DeSantis remains a favorite for re-election, leading by 5 percentage points.
And even though teachers unions have become increasingly unpopular since covid shutdowns, Crist chose the president of the Dade Teachers Union to be his running mate. Karla Hernández-Mats, who had loudly supported the woke indoctrination of children.
“Teachers didn’t go into this profession to be politicized. We’re truth-tellers,” she told CBS this summer. “We don’t believe in banning books …We see all these different culture wars from Governor DeSantis and really extreme legislators in Tallahassee that are impacting our school system.”
The majority of Florida’s voters support DeSantis’ stance on cultural issues.
USA Today recently reported that a “Florida survey found that 52% of Florida voters approve of the governor’s focus on culture issues — such as gender identity, sexual orientation and race — in schools and businesses and 47% disapprove.”
