Florida voters approve $15 minimum wage, while also voting for Trump.

Progressive policies are resoundingly popular by every measure. We just need to brand them more effectively.

Hell, look at all the deep red states that passed recreational marijuana legalization this cycle!

2. This Floridian voted for the minimum amendment and against Trump but...

I've come to believe that it's not only about branding... but it's also about who is doing the branding here in Florida.

When we passed the amendment to restore voting rights to ex-felons, we passed it in a nonpartisan way. I strongly believe that if Bernie Sanders, who I recall reading that he was a proponent of this, came down and stumped for it, support for it may have decreased.

With the minimum wage amendment, it was presented to people without a (D) or a (R) right beside it. In Florida, specifically, we'd have to pass our agenda via ballot initiative... or we do the hard work of converting some people. Republicans control the legislature here and they won't move on these issues. Our governor won't moderate his only positions despite half the state voting for the another person.

5. The branding is to just tell people you'll do what's popular.

They won't, however, by and large, because their donors pay them not to.

6. Florida

Floridians also voted by 65 % in a 2018 referendum to reinstate voting rights for former felons, but the republithugs screwed around with it.

8. Have to get rid of the sources of the brainwashing or it's just going to continue with too many?

They eat it up, they want it, it's like life sustaining medication to some of them, and any attack to it, HATE HATE activate?

If they aint woke on Death Count Donnie by now, they are intoxicated by it then.

BUBBLE BUTTHEADS!
