Former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is now leading in Florida after socialist Senator Bernie Sanders has continuously praised communist Cuba in recent weeks.
“Taken February 25-26 2020, among 2,788 likely Florida Democrat Presidential Primary voters, the survey showed Biden retaking the lead in Florida from Bloomberg in a significant way, with 34 percent to the former New York City mayor’s 25 percent,” Breitbart reports. “That represents a seven-point jump for Biden and a seven-point drop for Bloomberg since the last poll.”
Floridians are making it increasingly clear that Sanders is not their candidate considering he has dropped to third place despite his popularity in other states.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) continue to fail to make any significant strides in Florida, coming in a distant third place with 13 percent support. His failure to gain traction in Florida has been a reality but solidified following his controversial remarks on Fidel Castro’s Cuba, praising the literacy rates under his oppressive regime and proclaiming that the people did not revolt because the dictator “educated their kids, gave them health care, [and] totally transformed the society.”
Florida Democrats blasted Sanders’ praise of the dictator, including Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL), who called the remarks “absolutely unacceptable,” and Rep. Donna Shalala (D-FL), who stated that she hoped Sanders would “take time to speak to some of my constituents before he decides to sing the praises of a murderous tyrant like Fidel Castro”
On Tuesday evening during the Democratic debate hosted by CBS, Sanders strongly defended Communist regimes arguing that good things can happen when being controlled by a dictator.
“On this issue of the potential political peril you and Democrats could suffer in Florida, Congresswoman Donna Shalala said come on down to Miami and meet with the people who have been affected by his regime,” CBS News’ Ed O’Keefe stated. “Would you be willing to do that?”
“Cuba is a dictatorship, I’ve said that 8 million times,” Sanders stated. “But that does not mean to say, as Obama pointed out, that even under a dictatorship you can teach people to read and to write. That you can provide health care to all people.”
