Having overseen more covid-19 deaths in Florida than in any other state, DeSantis went on to outdo himself: he used over $600,000 in taxpayer dollars to lure 50 Venezuelan asylum seekers onto a flight to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, where he dumped them and left them without resources. That, in addition to being grossly immoral, may have been illegal.
Despite all that, DeSantis remains one of the most popular governors in America, according to a new poll conducted by Pulse Opinion Research for U.S. Term Limits. Statewide, 64 percent of Florida voters approve of the job DeSantis is doing, versus just 24 percent who disapprove. Support for DeSantis is broad across nearly all political and demographic groups.
I am forced to conclude that those who vote to keep DeSantis in power value conservative political values above the lives of their fellow citizens. I’m reminded of my questions about who could possibly vote for Donald Trump. Both DeSantis and Trump care greatly about retaining power and little about the welfare of citizens.
Who could possibly vote for such men?
