Wasn't the "massive influx of hurricane evacuees" supposed to turn Florida into a Democrat stronghold?
Worth examining, in my opinion.
The Puerto Ricans wealthy enough to leave probably arent libtards.
I figure they probably didnt vote in large numbers.
Maybe they’ve learned NOT to trust fast talking Democrats who make promises but don’t deliver.
They aren’t like Californians.
Maybe people spend too much time worrying about things that don’t matter.
Don’t be cocky. They came damn close to it.
And they probably will in a couple more elections.
So, what ever happened to the Florida-flippin’ Puerto Ricans?
I believe they were counted, and came up short.
Don’t count your chickens. Broward is still counting ballots and Nelson’s team thinks there’s more than enough ballots to take the lead.
There are trunkfuls to be "found" in Broward county. They do it every damn election.
Recall that Trump through FEMA renewed (a massive amount of money) the FEMA hotel vouchers for the displaced Puerto Rican hurricane evacuees. This served to orient them to returning to PR, and not be able to be “registered” (which they could NOT be under FL’s voter ID law) as dems.... that’s one.
Separately, most have missed the FBI raid on the San Juan Mayor’s offices (exposing the graft and corruption on FEMA supplies denied to PR island citizens), that and including the current corrupt governor of the Territory, in that same raid.
Do feel that the Wayne Liebnitsky loss to Soto in a Congressional District was affected by the existing PR expat community in that area of FL— but that demographic has been present since bill clinton eliminated the special taxing corporate district in PR— thus eliminating 900K skilled engineering jobs in Pharma and Agribusiness, and Pharma moved this operation to.. Ireland. It was an every 3 year accelerated tax write off for factory refurbishment/re-tooling, and clinton (in order to cultivate the statehood PR people there) got rid of it. Professional PR people were really pissed about it, and many moved to FL (again, skilled professionals, chem engineers etc).
They voted...and voted Scott. Probably saved us from the RAT.
Well they now have 1.5 million former felons. I don’t see how there can really be that many, however.
I cant even believe that. PR is deep blue, NY level blue.
Do they want jobs?
...or the next one...
Sadly; I think you are correct. With the influx of Puerto Ricans after the hurricane and the restoration of convicted felon voting rights, it looks rather likely that Florida will flip in 2020. Hopefully Trump will still carry the other states he carried in 2016. If so; Floridas EV's will not sway the result.
Wait, Florida squeaks out a republican governor and you get all uppity about Puerto Ricans and how they should be offended by claims they’ll vote demon?
Just be happy....
