Poll: Support for Florida Gov. DeSantis Surges After Sanctuary City Ban.
Support for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) is surging in recent weeks following a major legislative victory that banned sanctuary cities across the state.
John Binder, Breitbart, June 21, 2019:
The latest Quinnipiac Poll reveals that across the board, more voters in every demographic group in Florida — except with Democrat voters and black Americans — approve of the job DeSantis is doing as governor than those who disapprove.
Specifically, DeSantis’s total approval among all Florida voters stands at 55 percent with only 22 percent disapproving of the job he is doing thus far. About 83 percent of Republican voters approve of DeSantis and 51 percent of swing voters say they approve of the job he is doing as governor. Though a plurality of Democrat voters disapprove of DeSantis – about 40 percent – another 35 percent said they approve of the job he is doing.
Most notably, roughly 45 percent of Hispanic voters approve of DeSantis while only 25 percent said they disapprove. Among white voters, DeSantis earns huge support with 65 percent approving of the job he is doing and less than 20 percent disapproving.
White men are the most satisfied with DeSantis, as 73 percent approve of the job he is doing, with 65 percent of white college-educated voters agreeing.
Even among black Americans, DeSantis wins approval from about 35 percent with another 36 percent disapproving of him. Across every age group, more voters approve of DeSantis than they disapprove.
DeSantis’s popularity comes as he most recently signed into law a ban on sanctuary cities across Florida, outlawing the practice of local jurisdictions shielding criminal illegal aliens from deportation.
Florida is only the second state in the country with one of the largest foreign-born populations to outlaw the protection of illegal aliens. The first state with a large foreign-born population to implement a sanctuary city ban was Texas.
