Governor Ron DeSantis is delivering results for his constituents in Florida.
But that doesn’t stop far-Left Democrats from fighting the Governor every step of the way.
And according to the latest polling, American voters agree with DeSantis on this hotly debated issue.
While the Florida state House and Senate debated a Parental Rights in Education bill, woke leftists and their allies in Big Media pushed the peddle to the mettle with an all out attack on the legislation.
They even went as far as to label the common-sense bill, the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
That’s despite there being no restriction of the word “gay” anywhere in the text of the legislation.
The clown show took to Twitter and Tic Toc filling the platforms with endless videos of flamboyant people saying “gay” on repeat, like a broken record.
Even President Joe Biden weighed in on the legislation.
I want every member of the LGBTQI+ community — especially the kids who will be impacted by this hateful bill — to know that you are loved and accepted just as you are. I have your back, and my Administration will continue to fight for the protections and safety you deserve. https://t.co/OcAIMeVpHL

“I want every member of the LGBTQI+ community — especially the kids who will be impacted by this hateful bill — to know that you are loved and accepted just as you are,” Biden tweeted. “I have your back, and my Administration will continue to fight for the protections and safety you deserve.”
However, the latest polling from Politico/Morning Consultant – hardly a bastion of the far-Right – proves Americans are siding with Ron DeSantis and the Florida Legislature over President Biden and his woke administration.
In fact, 51% of respondents said they support restricting discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity below 4th grade.
The Parents Rights in Education bill restricts that level of discourse for grades K-3.
Meanwhile, 52% of voters support discussions to “age-appropriate” levels.
And while Republicans obviously support that sentiment in high numbers, and Democrats just as obviously oppose, independents are siding with the nuclear family.
By an 11-point margin, independents in the survey said they didn’t want young school kids learning about these adult level issues.
Another poll, this one from the Daily Wire which does lean Right, showed 64% support of the bill among American voters.
Americans support "banning the teaching of sexual orientation and gender identity from kindergarten through third grade" by a 16-point margin.

While Big Media focuses exclusively on the ban of sexual instruction for 5–7-year-olds, the main focus of the bill is all about parental rights.
The legislation specifies procedures schools must follow in relation to parents.
Once it becomes law, schools will have to notify parents of changes to their child’s emotional or physical health or well-being – and parents will have the right to refuse consent for any health care services offered by the school.
Schools will also be required to obtain parental permission for any health screening or wellness questionnaire.
It also will prohibit schools from encouraging students to keep information from parents.
And it allows parents access to their child’s school records.
The results from the Daily Wire poll run directly opposite to a recent survey from ABC/Ipsos.
However, a breakdown of the crosstabs of the ABC poll illustrates the survey vastly oversampled gay respondents – something Ipsos has already admitted to.
Governor DeSantis is expected to sign the bill into law soon.
He recently thanked the legislature for their action on this important issue.
“I can just say, as the parent of three kids that are age five and under, thank you for letting me and my wife be able to send our kids to kindergarten without them being sexualized,” DeSantis said.
