Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is falling fast in competition with Donald Trump, for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2024.
A few months ago, DeSantis was way ahead in polls, but now the situation has flipped, with Trump leading by about a 2-1 margin.
DeSantis is his own worst enemy, in his crazy battle against Disney World, the most important coporation in the “Sunshine State”, a battle he will not ultimately win.
His anti abortion legislation, limiting abortion to only six weeks, is radical; and his attacks on public education and what can be taught is Fascist oriented in nature.
His racism rivals that of former Alabama Governor George Wallace, when he chose to ban an African American History Advanced Placement course in the state.
There is evidence that the teaching profession in the state is fast declining, as many teachers are unwilling to be told what to teach and how to deal with racial matters and sexuality and gender issues.
The state university system will also be harmed by students who will decide to go elsewhere for higher education, and the schools themselves will start to lose the best professors, and those from elsewhere who will decide not to accept offers from state institutions, as unwilling to accept censorship.
DeSantis has not yet announced, but his path to the nomination is much more difficult than it seemed to be months ago!
