For months now, onlookers have been puzzled watching Gavin Newsom attack Ron DeSantis from across the country.
Many political insiders believe Newsom vs. DeSantis is a possible 2024 Presidential matchup.
But Ron DeSantis’ strong support among this group has Gavin Newsom fearing 2024.
DeSantis vs. Newsom
All summer long, Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom of California attacked Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida.
At one point, after narrowly surviving a recall election, Newsom went as far as to take out ads in Florida television markets bizarrely telling Floridians if they want freedom, they should move to California.
We’re about to celebrate Independence Day — but Freedom is under attack by Republican leaders in states like Florida.
Making it harder to vote.

In the ad, Newsom tried his luck as a comedian, saying unlike Florida, there’s still freedom in the Golden State.
“We’re about to celebrate Independence Day – but Freedom is under attack by Republican leaders in states like Florida,” Newsom said. “Banning books. Restricting speech. Making it harder to vote. Criminalizing women and doctors. It’s time to stand up. Don’t let them take your freedom.”
DeSantis’ team wasted no time in firing back and owning Newsom in the process.
“The people of Florida pay no mind to the pathetic smear campaigns from the Democrats and their allies in the corporate media,” DeSantis campaign spokesman Dave Abrams said. “We’re too busy enjoying the freedom Gov. Ron DeSantis has created in the Sunshine State.”
More recently, Newsom joined in with other Democrats in condemning DeSantis’ move to send illegal aliens to the so-called, “sanctuary city” of Martha’s Vineyard.
Newsom went as far as calling for America’s Governor to be charged with human trafficking.
Hispanic voters love America’s Governor
And as DeSantis continues scaring the Left by rising up the ranks within the GOP, leftists in politics, the Fake News Media, Big Tech, and Academia hoped the Sunshine State’s Governor had finally stepped in it when he flew 50 illegal aliens to the famous vacation spot of America’s urban, wealthy liberal elites.
But a new poll out of Florida shows the exact opposite.
🚨 FLORIDA POLL By Siena College
(R) Ron DeSantis 49% (+8)
(D) Charlie Crist 41%
(R) Ron DeSantis 52% (+18)
(D) Charlie Crist 34%

Not only does the notoriously left-leaning Siena College survey have DeSantis leading his 2022 opponent by 8-points, DeSantis is surging with Hispanic voters.
In fact, DeSantis leads the Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat Crist by 16-points with Hispanics.
And Crist isn’t the only Democrat who is hurting thanks to the migration of Hispanic voters from the Left to the Right.
Newsom, if he does run for the White House in 2024, and secure his Party’s nomination, would need strong support among Hispanics for any chance of defeating a Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump in the general election.
At the time of this writing, DeSantis leads Crist by 7-points in the RealClearPolitics average of polling in the Florida Governor’s contest.
