DeSantis’ Poll Deserts Him

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has seen his approval ratings take a hit in recent weeks, as his handling of the coronavirus pandemic has come under increasing scrutiny. Despite his best efforts to keep the state’s economy open and protect its citizens, DeSantis’s poll numbers have been steadily declining.

The governor’s approval rating has dropped from a high of 62% in April to just 48% in June, according to a recent survey from the University of North Florida. This is a significant drop from the high of 73% he enjoyed in February, before the pandemic began.

The survey also found that DeSantis’s handling of the pandemic has been a major factor in his declining approval ratings. A majority of respondents said they disapproved of his decision to reopen the state’s economy too quickly, and his handling of the virus in general.

DeSantis has also been criticized for his handling of the state’s unemployment system, which has been plagued by long wait times and technical glitches. The governor has also been accused of not doing enough to protect vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions.

Despite the governor’s best efforts to keep the state’s economy open and protect its citizens, his poll numbers have been deserting him. It remains to be seen if DeSantis can turn things around and regain the public’s trust, or if his approval ratings will continue to decline.
