Within the past year, the state of Florida has become reliably red. For quite some time, Florida was viewed as a purple state or swing state.
However, the massive rise in people moving to Florida and subsequently registering as Republicans played a significant role in turning the state red. The Sunshine State also just so happens to be one of the top destinations for Americans who are leaving blue states.
Nevertheless, Democrats in Florida are determined to try their best at taking back control of the state. At this time, the Florida Democratic primary election is underway; there are multiple Florida Democrats who want to take the job of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
New information from Breitbart News provides some insight into exactly where Florida Democrats stand.
Fighting a Losing Battle
Currently, the Democrats vying to become Florida’s next governor are Charlie Crist, Nikki Fried, and Annette Taddeo. Crist leads the pack at 54%, while Fried and Taddeo trail him at 28% and 7%.
All of the Florida Democrats have taken various potshots at DeSantis; nevertheless, he leads each and every single one of them in the polls.

What’s even more interesting is that back in 2021, the Democratic Governors Association came out and announced it wouldn’t be tossing capital behind Democrats looking to overthrow DeSantis.
This, in and of itself, is remarkable. It shows the powers that be know Florida is red. Florida Republicans control the state legislature and now enjoy the added advantage of having more registered voters than Democrats.
If Crist does get the Florida Democratic Party’s nomination, his defeat at the hands of DeSantis is all but guaranteed.
Not a Good Time to Be a Florida Democrat
Crist and Fried are currently the Florida Democrats making the most noise about their zest to unseat the current governor. However, this has been widely met with rejection and even ridicule.
At the end of the day, Americans are moving to Florida to get away from Democrat-backed policies like COVID mandates, high taxes, and a host of other problems.
Who is going to take on DeSantis. No Dem is polling near him.

Putting Crist, Fried, or any other Democrat in the Florida governor’s mansion would quickly morph the state into a carbon copy of New York or California.
Given that these leftist states have the most amounts of people leaving, while Florida’s got some of the highest numbers of new people moving in, it’s safe to say the residents of the Sunshine State will ultimately reject whichever Democrat faces DeSantis.
