It is not just Trump, but the entire Republican party hold on many Floridians. The majority of today's Florian Republicans are the people (and their descendants) who abandoned the Democratic party in 1974 in reaction to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights-- as an expression of the cultural racism in the state. It is the same people who seem to refuse to recognize that the same ideology keeps many parts of the state living near the poverty level. I grew up in north Florida, but could not live there today.

Everyone needs to be tested. Then we could know who has the virus and insure that they are quarantined. That would spread out the curve. Still, until a vaccine is de4velopded the odds are that, over time, 70 to 80 percent of us are going to catch it.
