BOOM: Ron DeSantis Expands Lead Over Democrat Challenger, Explodes Into Double-Digit Margins

Florida’s incumbent governor Ron DeSantis made a huge, albeit unsurprising, move in the latest polling among likely voters. A new Mason-Dixon poll conducted at the end of September shows the conservative leader pulling away from Republican-turned-Independent-turned-Democrat rival Charlie Crist.

CBS reported:

As the days count down to the November general election, a new poll shows Republican incumbent Ron DeSantis has opened an 11-point lead over Democratic challenger Charlie Crist in the Florida governor’s race.

Statewide, DeSantis has the support of 52 percent of likely voters, while 41 percent back Crist, according to a Mason-Dixon poll conducted September 26 through September 28. It involved 800 registered voters who all indicated they are likely to vote in the election. 

One percent of those surveyed were split between two other candidates and six percent said they were undecided.

Ron Desantis has opened up an 11 point lead in his bid for re-election according to a poll from Mason-Dixon research. He won election by less than a point in 2018. If he wins by 11 or more it would be the biggest Republican win in a statewide race in modern Florida history.

Since the poll was held, DeSantis has also guided Florida through the first week of hurricane recovery and is receiving near-universal plaudits from residents and honest media coverage. He was prepared before the arrival of Ian, constantly communicating with residents and updating them with forecasts, and has deployed a huge team of line workers to restore power. It seems likely his growth would not only be sustained but increased following his superb guidance.

Even without the hurricane, it seemed unlikely DeSantis would suffer in the polls given his opponent’s nasty campaign. Previously, he declared that those who would vote for him were “toothless hillbillies” and bizarrely claimed he didn’t want those people voting for him at all. 

“Those who support the governor should stay with him and vote for him. I don’t want your vote. If you have that hate in your heart — keep it. I want the vote of the people of Florida who care about our state. Good Democrats, good independents, good Republicans — unify with this ticket,”

As with Joe Biden’s dangerous villainization of political rivals, Crist only reveals the anti-human, nasty streak found in the modern Democrat Party. Anyone not brainwashed by corporate media can see him for what he truly is.

Meanwhile, DeSantis fights for Floridians. He stood up to Disney, he stood up to the overt sexualizaztion of children in public schools, and he has won massive support from people who are fed up with the left’s content push into their lives.

Considering he barely eked out a victory in 2018, his presumed thrashing of Crist in November will be the ultimate memo to America that we want strong moral leadership and that Americans are largely fed up with disgusting leftist ideology.
