New York Republicans are Moving to Florida in Droves

Florida continues to shine as a beacon for Americans weary of living in overly regulated blue states, thanks to Republican Governor Ron DeSantis and a Republican legislative majority.

Just the News reports that there has been an all-time high in the number of New Yorkers re-enrolling to vote in Florida, which has also witnessed a dramatic spike in the number of people registering as Republicans.

New York Post researchers verified the data with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

We’re here to let you know that the era of Trump and Lee Zeldin and Marc Molinaro, the county executive of Dutchess County, is ended, OK? The statement was made by Gov.  Kathy Hochul (D-NY) during a campaign event for U.S. Representative-elect Pat Ryan.

Ryan won a special election to replace Molinaro in New York’s 19th congressional district. Leave immediately. Escape the city. Simply put, you don’t share our values, Hochul said, addressing the New York Republicans.

New Yorkers reacted even before Hochul made her controversial comments. The United States Census Bureau’s data shows that between July 2020 and July 2021, about 319,020 people left the Empire State. This amounted to a yearly decline of 1.6% and made New York the state with the highest rate of population loss. New York has lost a congressional seat due to the steady outflow of its population over the past decade.

Between July 2020 and July 2021, Florida saw an increase of 211,196 residents. Since its population has grown over the past decade, it has gained a congressional seat. Around one million new Floridian voters will sign up between October 2018 and July 2022, yet less than eighteen thousand will self-identify as Democrats.

In contrast, the Republican Party in Florida is in a strong position thanks to the nearly 500,000 new voters registered as Republicans. The Western Journal reports that there are 5,191,018 Republicans in the state. To put it another way, that’s an increase of 509,420 new members for the Florida GOP since the last election in November 2018. In other words, This represents an increase of around 10%.

The site claims that over this period, “Democratic Party registration climbed from 4,962,064 to 4,944,867 — a gain of only 17,197 people.”  Increasing numbers of Floridians choosing to identify as Republicans were called the greatest figure in Florida politics nobody is speaking of 17,197, according to Christian Ziegler, vice chairman of the Florida GOP. Although 1,037,685 new Floridians have cast ballots since [Ron DeSantis’] election in 2018, just 17,197 have chosen to register as Democrats.

The people of Florida are connecting with Republicans and showing a historic rejection of the Democrat Party, he said, as reported by Florida’s Voice. Governor DeSantis is delivering on vital issues, he said.

Ziegler claims that while the numbers are promising, we cannot afford to back down at this juncture. The Florida GOP is dedicated to the battle, and we will not rest until Governor DeSantis wins, freedom in Florida is safeguarded for generations to come, and the Democrat Party is extinct in our state.

Republicans from other states have commented on their party’s exceptional gains in Florida under DeSantis. Some Republicans have criticized Democrats for allegedly failing to offer citizens anything in the way of their ideologies. Lee County GOP Chairman, Jonathan Martin, said the symptoms that are currently afflicting the Democrat Party in Florida point back to the virus that is the failure of the leadership in Washington, DC. The disastrous anti-American values that are driving state and local Democrats further away from where their constituents stand. Rep. Spencer Roach of Florida said that their entire platform opposes whatever Ron DeSantis does.
