I think someone on top said it best: Merger with the GOP.

It looks like DeSANTIS received a bump from the Surfside crisis, he has been at 60% Approvals along with Rubio ever since then.

Demings isn't flipping this race, Carville recruited Demings, he said after 2020 Election we are going after DeSantis, which includes Rubio and he mentioned Deming's

Where is this 60% approval rating? could you provide a link? I saw 55% but that was May.

Focus on repairing the damage in South FL. Not just Miami either, but try to stop the years long bleeding in Palm Beach County and its environs. Bring out all sorts of voters in the entire region and try flipping back FL-18, -26, and -27. Cubans can be persuaded to shift back to the Dems, at least a good chunk of those who haven't been totally brainwashed by right-wing disinformation.

FDP should also focus on other areas trending blue as well, such as Brevard. State parties can do some good in helping speed trends along. Massive voter registration drives can aid in bringing new voters into the fray. As some users mentioned, Florida Dems should get into contact with new Caribbean immigrants, younger voters, and Dem-leaning transplants from other states. This will be needed to counterbalance the influx of conservative retirees from the rest of the south and midwest.

It also wouldn't hurt to really try to maximize margins in Hillsborough, Orange, or Broward either.

The bad part about some of these trends, like in Palm Beach County or the once Dem Volusia county, is that they've been occurring for years. It's not an Obama, Trump, Hillary, or Biden thing, it's just probably inexorable trend.

In fact it looks like the panhandle is the part of the state that might be trending D the quickest

Thats Jacksonville. Though North Florida in general is sorta trending Dem....

The Panhandle is slowly trending D though its like going from 80/20 for Republicans to 70/30 for Republicans.

Florida was only so close during the 1990s and 2000s thanks to the influence of G.I./Silent Generation retirees from the Northeast and Midwest.  That demographic has now been replaced by a more conservative set of Boomer retirees.

There is no conceptual reason a state like Florida (i.e., old, Evangelical/Catholic, lots of Cubans, exurban, not particularly college-educated, mostly Southern, etc.) should  be anything other than a Lean R state.  Republicans' recent gains can be understood as a revision to a historical mean.

Charlie Crist can win and so can Tim in a 2018 Environment where Ds win the NPVI by 5/8 points, and the Election is 500 days it's called split voting like OH did in 2018 and AZ between Gov and Sen, Brown and Sinema won and so did DeWine and Ducey

NC split it's vote between Gov and Sen 2020 between Cooper, Trump and Tillis

A Rubio and Crist split vote or a Ryan and Renacci or a Warnock and Kemp or a Kelly and Yee split vote isn't out of the question in 2022

The Election is 500 days, it's called wave insurance for a reason

If we get a Filibuster proof Senate, we get PR and DC Statehood, PR helped give 15.00, minimum wage passed in 2020 in FL
