I do agree with +Colleen McGinley
and +Zach Stein
that this is a problem of governance here in Florida. Here more than most places in the US the population is very representative of how the overall US population is heading. We have several very conservative monochromatic sections of the state. Some of those are very white, some are very hispanic, some are very african-american. Here in Florida none of those areas are monolithic voting blocks however. The breakdown is more geographic with a very conservative northern section of the state, the mix along the I4 corridor and the more liberal south.
One of the key problems of governance in my opinion? Our Gov put money into fighting Constitutional Amendments requiring redistricting rather than put money into actually doing what the law says.
