MSNBC’s Joy Reid and The Atlantic’s Jemele Hill attacked reports highlighting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Hispanic support by claiming
that it’s related to racism.
NBC News reported Friday that Florida Democrats were growing concerned
over the Republican politician’s popularity among Latino voters ahead
of the midterm elections. In fact, some suggested that DeSantis’
standing with Hispanics could propel him to be the first Republican
governor to win Miami-Dade County since Jeb Bush in 2002.
"[Mi Vecino co-founders Alex] Berrios and [Devon] Murphy Anderson said
they have held over 2,000 conversations with Hispanic voters in
Miami-Dade. Aside from high enthusiasm for DeSantis among Republicans,
about 29% of those with no party affiliation and 25% of Democrats said
they were voting for DeSantis," Carmen Sesin wrote.
Although this report emphasized DeSantis "outperforming" with Latino
voters, Reid and Hill instead insisted that this shift in politics was
due to racism.
