In Play And DeSantis Beats Trump?

I have yet to sit down and “game out” an Electoral College map for 2024. My Senate review/predictions to date have all been clearly denoted as preliminary and subject to change. That said, my thinking constantly evolves. Today I’ve got Florida on my mind.

A 2024 Case For Rank Choice Voting

(To be frank, much of the current GOP base doesn’t consider naturalized citizens to be citizens – unless they are related to Donald Trump by marriage that is.) I could go on but you get the idea and it sets the stage for today’s posting.
