Bloomberg Wins Florida…

Bloomberg Wins Florida…

At least that is what the polls tell us.

It is the only state so far where former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is the number one choice among the Democrat presidential candidates.

Some media pundits express surprise.  They note that Florida is a southern state, has a Republican governor and two Republican senators and is recently the home state of President Trump.  Why, they wonder, would a liberal former mayor of the Big Apple do well in Florida?

Anyone who is scratching their head over that question has never been to Florida – and certainly not to south Florida, where I live.

The State of Florida has the highest percentage of Jews than any state with the obvious exception of New York – surpassing California by a fraction of a percent.  Furthermore, they are overwhelmingly from the New York City area.  I cannot say that they are all from New York City, but I am yet to meet one who is not — and I have spoken to a number of Jewish audiences and organizations.  A nearby senior retirement facility flies the Israeli flag.

The highest concentration of New York Jews is in the counties of Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade.  The congressional delegation in southeast Florida is mostly composed of Jewish Democrats, including Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Lois Frankel and Ted Deutch.

Outside of a very few Republicans, most of the Jewish population is hardcore liberal Democrat.  By that I mean, they will vote Democrat no matter who the candidate is or what policies he or she may propose.  Though most Jews are believed to be staunch supporters of Israeli, a large portion of the New York Jewish community is highly critical of the conservative government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Florida – and especially south Florida – has been trending Democrat thanks to the influx of New Yorkers – disproportionately Jewish – and the general incompetence of the local Republican parties.  In other words, there are a lot of Jews in Florida cut from the same cloth as Bloomberg.  The fact that he would do well in the Sunshine States should come as no surprise.

So, there ‘tis.
