@#1 ... won't be Prez anytime soon ...

I would be so quick with that possible outcome.

What percentage of NY state wanted citizen Trump to be President at a similar time in the 2016 election cycle?

Comparing a fiercely blue states support of redtard candidate is not the same as a red state support of a redtard candidate.

Cubans love a dictator

Cuban men especially love other toxic masculinity

It's a bromance.

When I sold my condo in Miami you couldn't turn around without some Cuban meatheads talking glowingly of Putin

They didn't say they wouldn't vote for him...they said they would prefer he not be on the ballot.

But I guarantee you many of those people will vote for him if he's the republican nominee.

Republicans don't need people to like them....they just need to not have a "D" after their name.

This is true, but they don't now it. They feel that have to cling to radical far right wing agenda in order to get votes. Like all single lever pullers, they have the right wing vote locked in. If they shifted a bet towards center, they wouldn't lose them, but they would get more votes.

Same principle applies to the Democrats.

A guy with a funny Spanish sounding last name?

Is he even an American citizen? (I know I know. These things only matter when the candidate is a Democrat.)

I guess we'd figure out if, at a national level, Republicans are willing to vote for a none white candidate.

New York City and most of eastern NY knew citizen Trump as a Democrat.

But I take your point.

DeSantis probably thought he was going to ride his "Frrreeedumb!l!" pitch through an easy 2022 gubernatorial reelection campaign as he invested in some more oversized suits - gotta wonder if he's gone full MAGA Rubio with lifts in his shoes, lol - for his Big Run in 2024.

Well, now, the best laid plans of mice and men and mice-men aft gang agley, don't they now?

What DeSantis is going to have to sell in 2022 is the idea that he's a helluva guy who did a helluva job when faced with COVID. Problem is, he's been a nasty, whinging typical MAGA crybaby ... and utterly incompetent ... worse, incapable of changing course.

To vote for such an incompetent is to do more than just vote against your own material self-interest; more like giving a guy jacked-up on his own supply power of attorney to sign your death warrant.

Generally speaking Floridians are typical Americans and we don't say no to DeathSantis we, as Americans, say hell no! Hey Republicans nominate him, he will go down like the Titanic. We love our Children and Death demonstrated he doesn't. Too many of those who would actually vote for him are residing in ICU units in Florida hospitals and most will probably not survive while he tells everyone that masks are optional, not because he is actually dumb enough to believe that but just because he thinks it will win him a popularity contest and now he is discovering that his theory was wrong. Floridians oppose him k60% - 40% for reelection as Gov. much less elect that evil piece of crap President. If we wanted another Trump term we would have elected Trump. America is sick of Trump and DeathSantis is just an immitation of Trump.

The konly way Death would win in Florida is if the cheating increases which, with Republicas in Florida, that is always a possibility. But he could never win a legitimate election here in Florida, most of us hate him. He was willing to risk our kids health for partisan politics and, by far, most Floridians just won't tolerate that.

No, you're full of crap. If right wing Republican candidates veer away from white nationalism they lose votes. Their voters want Nazis and if they won' pretend to be Nazis they will lose votes. The GQP is the American Nazi Party. Oen it.

Wondering if Danni knows that Florida did vote for Trump. Trump won Florida by almost 400,000 votes.

Anyone who expects Florida to suddenly stop being stupid might be dumber than the average Floridian.

This equation needs to factor in the COVID factor, and that can NOT be playing well among those suburban women who could hold the key to this mug's political future.

True.

The 2020 election results showed me that the majority of Repubs wouldn't put the well-being of their own families over supporting an idiot despot.

Just need about 17,000 thousand 2018 DeSatanist (he sacrifices the lives of children for power) voters to come to their senses to flip the governorship to Dem.

I'll hope for the best, but expect the worst.

All anyone KNOWS is that Republicans try to cheat in every election in Florida and have done so for decades. I don't believe any statistic released by the state nor any election result here either. Jeb showed Republicans how to win elections in Florida....cheat!
