Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is wildly popular with Republican voters because, like Donald Trump, he’s willing to stand up to the Fake News Media.
This makes DeSantis one of the Left’s most hated Republicans.
And Democrats are infuriated with Ron DeSantis for speaking the truth about this one critical issue.
“In Florida, girls are going to play girls sports and boys are going to play boys sports,” Governor DeSantis explained at an event where he signed legislation to ban biological males from playing girls sports in Florida high school and colleges.
Of course, Democrats are outraged over the legislation signed by DeSantis, calling it a “culture war” issue.
However, poll after poll shows that the overwhelming majority of Americans support banning biological males from playing girls sports.
Today @GovRonDesantis signed a law to protect women's sports–ensuring female athletes can compete on a level playing field. Thank you for protecting scholarships and opportunities for women and girls for years to come. https://t.co/cJnx4efDTd

According to Florida State Senator Kelli Stargel, the new legislation is popular because it’s a matter of simple fairness.
“It’s not meant to be hurtful. It’s not meant to be discriminating. It’s not meant to attack any group,” Stargel stated. “This is not about that. This is about sports and having competitive advantage and having the ability to compete,” she said, adding that the measure is meant to aid women, giving them the opportunity “to participate, to get scholarships, to excel with other women of like strength and capability.”
This is Governor DeSantis’ second major legislative win in recent weeks, coming after he recently signed legislation banning vaccine passports, cracking down on rioters, and enacting new election integrity measures, as well as a law making it illegal for Big Tech to censor political candidates in Florida.
And the cherry on top is that DeSantis signed the legislation the first day of so-called “pride month” in June.
Governor DeSantis’ willingness to fight back against the Left is why the polls also show that if Donald Trump doesn’t run for President again in 2014, Ron DeSantis will be the frontrunner.
But he will also have a massive target on his back just like Trump did in 2016 and for his entire four years in office.
