Poll: DeSantis trails Crist, Fried

Pensacola: In a recent poll of 1000 likely Florida voters, there has been a huge swing from previous polls eight weeks earlier.

Governor Ron DeSantis’ handling of the pandemic has led to him losing a great deal of traction versus both Democrat opponents – Charlie Crist and Nikki Fried. The two Democrat contenders are stronger with their own party base than Ron DeSantis is with the Republican base.

Ron DeSantis 433 43.3%
Charlie Crist 567 56.7%
Ron DeSantis 463 46.3%
Nikki Fried 537 53.7%

  1. Crist would be an upgrade– but who wouldn’t be?

    Fried for Florida Governor.

  2. Seems he only won by 100k in his last election. I doubt voter numbers will change in Northwest Florida but it might be a little more interesting in Central and South Florida. Some of the voter restriction laws he advocated might energize voters to get out the vote.

  3. DeSantis is not protecting the public safety to the best of his ability and power during the pandemic. Of course the ones not in office can exploit that.
    From the US Supreme Court
    Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11 (1905)
    “It is within the police power of a State to enact a compulsory vaccination law, and it is for the legislature, and not for the courts, to determine…”
    Page 197 U. S. 12
    (This was about Smallpox, and most of us are familiar with that as well as polio, this situation is no different–except we have the internet to spread misinfo,bias and false knowledge)
    Now that the FDA has given full approval to the Pfizer vaccine, it should be mandated at every level–school boards for age 12 and up.

    Florida should follow other state Medical board’s lead:

    Inappropriate Exemptions May Subject Physicians to Discipline Posted: 8/18/21

    “The Medical Board of California (Board) would like to inform licensees and the public that a physician who grants a mask or other exemption without conducting an appropriate prior exam and without a finding of a legitimate medical reason supporting such an exemption within the standard of care may be subjecting their license to disciplinary action.

    The Board encourages the public to file a complaint with the Board if they feel that a physician is granting mask exemptions inappropriately. ”

    We need governance not politics.

    The local government should follow.
