The Democrat primary moves to the Sunshine State of Florida, also known as America’s retirement home. Which is perfect for the two geriatrics left running for president on the Democrat side. Obviously the advantage goes to Joe Biden, since he’s already the preferred candidate of the olds. But Florida really, really seems to hate Bernie Sanders.
No state accentuates Sanders’ weaknesses and Biden’s strengths quite like Florida, which votes Tuesday with a payload of 219 delegates, more than any other state left on the primary calendar besides New York.
A poll released Wednesday showed Florida Hispanics, by a 34-point margin, look unfavorably upon a candidate who describes himself as a “socialist.”
If that weren’t evidence enough of the buzzsaw Sanders is heading toward in the Sunshine State, Biden is beating him overall by a three-to-one margin, 66 to 22 percent, according to a University of North Florida poll out Wednesday.
I can’t imagine why. Especially after Bernie let the world know how much he stans Castro (see Bernie Sanders Praises Castro in ’60 Minutes’ Interview … in 2020 [VIDEO] and Bernie Sanders Praises Castro – AGAIN – During CNN Town Hall [VIDEO]). Or all the anti-Semites who seem to stan Bernie (see WATCH: Ilhan Omar Refuses to Answer Reporter’s Questions About Her Own Tweets and Israel Will Bar Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from Entry). OK, so maybe I can imagine why.
But being 44 points behind in a swing state has to be a record. The coronavirus has higher approval ratings. I’d like to see that polled in Florida. Bernie Sanders vs. COVID-19. Which is more popular? I think it will be close.
