As Florida deals with a surge in COVID-19 cases and a battle intensifies over an executive order issued by Governor Ron DeSantis to ban mask mandates in schools, a majority of people in Florida say 60 - 36 percent that they support requiring students, teachers, and staff to wear masks in schools, according to a Quinnipiac University poll of Florida adults released today.

- 36 percent

That's been a pretty stable approx number for Trumpish voter behavior for some time now.

Amazing how often that number comes up, don't it?

"61% Say Recent Rise In COVID-19 Cases In Florida Was Preventable"

That's only because a) it WAS preventable, and b) 39% of Floridians are clearly macro morons.

If 39% decide using their freedom means it's not preventable, then it's not preventable.

See Also: Gun violence is not preventable. A minority percentage using their freedom means it's not preventable.

Some counties like Miami-Dade and Broward are telling DeathSantis to cram his prohibition against mandates where the sun don't shine. The more intelligent citizens of Florida care more about our kids than Trump. I love knnowing that everyone in my grandson's school is wearing a mask even though Death wanted it to be up to the ignorant parents. If they are too stupid to insist on masks then they are probably too stupid to be parents.

Hmmm. No local control of schools. Sounds a lot like command and control government, and not much like 'freedom'...

If we 60% can survive, that 36% might be down to 20% in another year. It would seem Murphy's Law is still working.

It's a shame those mutation factories will exist that long, given this virus.

Four in ten Floridians support filling the graveyards with dead school kids. (Don't those Floridians also deserve to have their beliefs taken into account?)

6 in 10 Floridians support requiring masks in schools.

4 in 10 Floridians are dead, in the ICU, or Ron DeSantis.
