Politico: Florida Democrats already pointing fingers about 2022

I am at a point where I think the Democrats failure to understand the demographic changes that were visibly going on in the state from 2014 to 2020 are more the reasons for failure than any issue with party infrastructure, though those remain great.

It is pretty galling in hindsight that the warnings we threw up on this site about the demographic shifts were not only ignored but actively countered by prominent Florida Democrats who claimed the influx of Puerto Rican voters and restoration of felons rights would shift the state from purple to blue. These leaders appeared completely unaware of the rapid changes happening in many exurban and suburban areas of the state.

Also as we discussed the last few days regarding the ghost candidate scandal, Florida Democrats sometimes have to contend with not-so-loyal forces internally.

Anyhow, Politico Florida has a look at the finger pointing already taking place in advance of the 2022 elections.

  1. I do wonder if there is any path out for the Democrats in Florida. If you take say the 10% most Trumpy population of all the states in the Northeast and move them to Florida, well you change the demographics of Florida pretty dramatically in way that is impossible to get around.
