Bloomberg editors claim GOP popularity with Latino voters in Florida is a ‘big problem’ for Democrats

Bloomberg editors published an editorial Friday highlighting Republican gains among Latino voters and the trouble the Democratic Party could face if this trend continues.

An editorial titled “Democrats’ Florida drubbing is a cautionary tale” cited Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Marco Rubio pointed to sweeping victories in the Sunshine State.

“As much as Democrats want to make the most out of last week’s midterm election results — one of the better results in recent times for the party in power — they can’t ignore the defeat they took in Florida, a longtime purple wringer. The field of what is now solid red,” wrote the editors.

“Without an immediate assessment of what went wrong, the party is at risk of losing the country’s third most populous state in the near future,” he said.

The 2022 midterm elections saw the Democrats lose the House of Representatives, but retain control of the Senate regardless of the outcome of the Georgia Senate election runoff. However, Republicans nationwide are hoping that GOP nominee Herschel Walker will secure the Georgia Senate seat to keep the Democratic majority slim and Sens. Joe Manchin, W.W. VA, and would empower moderate Democrats like Kirsten Sinema as a hedge against a Biden administration. Excessive agenda item.

However, in Florida, where former President Trump increased his margin of victory from 1.2 percent in 2016 to 3.3 percent in 2020, Republicans fared well across the board. DeSantis, who won his 2018 gubernatorial election by just 0.4%, has raised his margin of victory to 19.4% in 2022.

Bloomberg editors pointed out that DeSantis and Rubio also won Miami-Dade County in Florida, a typical stronghold for Democrats.

He wrote, “Not only did Governor Ron DeSantis and Senator Marco Rubio win the election handily, both defeated their opponents in Miami-Dade, the state’s most populous county, with 2.7 million people, more than two-thirds of whom are more Hispanic, beat.” “In doing so, he underscored a strange trend: The Democrats’ brand with Latino voters is crumbling in Florida — and showing worrying signs across the country.”

Editors pointed to Republican voter-registration drives as part of the GOP’s winning strategy among immigrants from places like Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua.

He also recalled DeSantis’ responses to flying illegal immigrants to other states to remind the Democratic Party that Latinos are not a monolithic voting bloc.

The editors wrote, “Even DeSantis’ most egregious stunt – sending a plane full of Venezuelan immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts – found solid Latino support.” ,This should be a reminder to Democrats that Hispanics are not a monolith and immigration is not their defining issue. In fact, a recent poll found immigration to rank ninth among Latinos’ concerns, trailing behind the economy, education, violent crime, and so on.

He continued, “In trying to reverse these trends, Democrats need to stop taking Latinos for granted and start focusing on what they really care about.”

The editors also criticized the Democratic Party’s continued use of the term “Latinx”—and its unpopularity among Latinos—as an example of the party being out of touch.
