While the resistance of the Parental Rights in Education bill has largely been concentrated among Liberal Americans across the country, not all of Florida's voting constituents have been taken into account.  In a recent poll, it is revealed that 52% of Florida Democrat voters actually support the controversial legislation, now signed into law.

Conducted by Floridians for Economic Advancement, the poll sheds light on the bipartisan backing of the bill by Floridians, which many would not have known to have existed based on the national opposition.

Activist groups and the media did everything and anything to make the bill as distasteful as they possibly could.  We saw the bill become the punch line on Saturday Night Live, spark protest among Disney employees, and was even rebranded as the, "Don't Say Gay," bill so well, that a solid portion of Americans believed the bill's language actually used the term, "Gay."

To many Americans' surprise, the majority of Florida Democrats either, "somewhat (20%)," or, "definitely (32%)," oppose teaching Kindergarteners through third graders about sexual orientation.  Only 12% were unsure of their thoughts on the bill.

President Joe Biden (D) previously called the bill, "hateful," going on to say, "Every student deserves to feel safe and welcome in the classroom. Our LGBTQI+ youth deserve to be affirmed and accepted just as they are."  Many Florida Democrat Lawmakers spoke out in protest against the bill as well, hiding the true consensus of actual voters.

The poll, conducted March 17-20 of this year, surveyed 701 likely Democratic primary voters in Florida.
