New Poll Shows DeSantis’ Receiving High Approval Numbers in Florida

After a stunning 2018 victory against a Democrat candidate Andrew Gillum, that many pollsters saw as having the edge, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has continued to score high approval marks among key voters in Florida.

Mason-Dixon Polling found DeSantis enjoys the approval of 93% of Florida Republicans, 40% of Florida Democrats and 62% of Florida Swing Voters.

Breitbart reports the majority of swing voters in Florida, as well as Hispanics, approve of the job Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) of Florida is doing thus far, a new poll reveals.

A Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy poll released this week finds that DeSantis is continuing his surge of popularity since becoming governor this year. With all Florida voters, about 65 percent approve of DeSantis, while only 26 percent disapprove.

This includes about 62 percent, or five-in-eight, swing voters who approve of DeSantis, as well as 93 percent approval from Florida Republicans and even 40 percent approval from Democrat voters.

Across demographic groups, DeSantis remains the most popular GOP governor in the nation, earning support from 70 percent of male voters, 61 percent of female voters, 56 percent of Hispanics, 42 percent of black Floridians, 71 percent of white voters, 69 percent of voters 50 years old or older, and 59 percent of voters younger than 50 years old.

The poll comes after DeSantis embarks on another populist agenda for the new year, which includes vowing to fight for mandatory E-Verify to ban employers from hiring illegal aliens over Americans, increasing education funding, providing pay raises to public school teachers, moving to invest billions in conserving the Everglades, increased funding for mental health services, and more than $54 million to fight against the opioid epidemic.
