Ron DeSantis Is Florida’s Next Governor. Margin Barely Budges After Machine Recount.

Excerpt:

TALLAHASSEE

Nine days after Election Day, and one machine recount later, it is all but official: Ron DeSantis is Florida’s next governor.

The results of the statewide machine recount which rolled by the Thursday 3 p.m. deadline, solidified what most already knew, as DeSantis has already made himself busy with transitioning to power and creating a new government.

In the governor’s race, it was an anticlimactic finish to the dramatic machine recount ?plagued with technical issues and an avalanche of lawsuits ?with almost not change in the margin between DeSantis and his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum, since this weekend. Still, about .41 percentage points separate the two candidates, or just under 34,000 votes.

Just after the results were released, DeSantis sent a statement to reporters declaring victory ?once again.

“I remain humbled by your support and the great honor the people of Florida have shown me as I prepare to serve as your next governor,?his statement read, striking a more conciliatory tone than the confrontational approach he used in the campaign.

He said the campaign must now end so it can “give way to governing and bringing people together to secure Florida’s future. With the campaign now over, that’s where all of my focus will be.

“And, to this end, I invite Mayor Gillum to join me in the days ahead in a conversation about the future of our great state.?br />
Unlike the races for U.S. Senate and commissioner of agriculture, DeSantis?margin of victory is not slim enough to proceed to a manual recount, which requires the race to be within one-fourth of a percentage point.

That means Thursday is the end of the road, and barring a lawsuit that demands a change in procedure, the official results of the governor’s race will likely be submitted by the counties on Sunday and will likely be officially certified on Tuesday, Nov. 20.

It speaks poorly for Florida that the socialist had so much support.

Honestly, the closeness is more than likely contributed to the massive influx of Puerto Ricans fleeing the island after Hurricane Maria. The Nelson camp did hard effort in registering displaced Puerto Ricans. Numbers put the shift up to 200k people with the VAST majority typically voting Democrat. Considering that Puerto Rico is pretty much a full on socialist nation....

I agree but include two other key factors. One, that I call The Bobo Effect, is that Gollum drew out more black people to vote and they voted 90%+ for "the black guy". The other is The Biden Effect. "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man." Groping Joe could've easily said this about Gollum too and that was enough for a lot of low info voters.

It was almost a perfect storm that could've damaged Florida immensely. We dodged a bullet.

I fear for my state....I do think most of it was the "first black governor" angle.

Florida Counties Ditch Recount Results As Numbers Favor Republicans

The Daily Caller
12:07 PM 11/16/2018 | Politics
Molly Prince | Politics Reporter

excerpt:

Two counties in Florida did not submit the results of the election recount in the required time frame, which would have otherwise increased the Republican candidates?leads over their Democrat challengers, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Both Broward and Hillsborough Counties failed to meet Thursday’s deadline to submit the tallies from the machine recounts and instead ended up submitting the unofficial vote count reported on Saturday, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The recount would have ultimately increased the margin for both Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Rep. Ron DeSantis’s races by a couple hundred votes.

The reasoning for the untimely tally in Broward County is unknown, however, Hillsborough County purposefully missed the deadline since the recount yielded fewer total votes than those recorded on Election Day, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

*SNIP*

Gillum still refuses to concede.

Buh-bye Gollum. You ain't gotta go home but you got to get the hell up out of here. :cool:

And interesting Scott/Nelson info:

Analysis by Univ. of Florida professor finds Broward’s poor ballot design ‘may have actually disadvantaged Scott?/a>

And down goes another lib narrative.

Liberals Say Gillum Lost Florida Election Due to Racism, Forget Obama Won the State Twice

Townhall.com
Timothy Meads
Nov 17, 2018

excerpt:

Andrew Gillum, the socialist Democratic gubernatorial candidate from Florida, has officially lost the race to Republican candidate Ron DeSantis. Some of Gillum's most ardent supporters say that he lost because he's black and Florida's voters are racist. These same people forget that Barack Obama, America's first black president, won the state twice in 2008 and 2012.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, folks like Judy Beck are positive that had Gillum been a different skin color, then he would have won the race. "Andrew Gillum would have won if he were white," said Beck, a St. Petersburg retiree and registered Democrat.

Even a state senator, Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, claim the election came down to racism.

"I'm not one to call racism unless I smell it, feel it, touch it, walk with it," Rouson said. "But there are many who would argue, and make good points, that racism did have a role."

This narrative falls apart though when looking at simple exit polls from the election. If white people voting against Gilum due to his skin color were to blame for his failure, then how do these Democrats explain the voting behavior of Florida's black population.

As noted by the Tampa Bay Times, "Exit polls showed 86 percent of black voters cast ballots for Gillum, and 90 percent backed Nelson. At least 95 percent of black voters backed Barack Obama 2008 and 2012."

Oh FFS... :rolleyes:

But yup, racism played a role: 86 percent of black voters cast ballots for Gollum. Gollum did as well as he did BECAUSE he is black. If he were white and spouted off his insane income tax wanting, gun grabbing, business killing, tax raising, campaign promises he never would've been above single digits in the polls. Perpetual victims and virtue signalling morons can GFY. Idiots.

Exactly. Plenty of the votes he got were specifically because he's black. If everything about him, his campaign, his politics, etc, were exactly the same except that he was white, he never would've gotten as many votes as he did.

Leftists.Are.So.Freaking.Stupid.
