Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is a star. Perhaps the best governor in the United States. DeSantis has a 68 % approval rating in Florida. However, here is what should scare the Democrats. DeSantis’ approval rating with Latino voters and black voters is well above 60 percent. As is his approval rating with young people between the ages of 18-35.
He is proof that with the right candidate Republicans do not need to be underwater with minority voters. If the Republican party can replicate Ron DeSantis’ success with minority voters, then the Democrat Party is finished. If DeSantis can maintain his popularity he will surely run for POTUS in 2024.
New Poll Numbers Show Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis Is A Smash Hit
The Daily Wire, December 13, 2019:
Newly released poll results show that Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is wildly popular in the state as the majority of voters in all age, gender, race, and political demographics strongly approve him.
Reporter Ryan James Girdusky highlighted new poll results from New Saint Leo University, which found that DeSantis had a 68% approval rating compared to only a 20% disapproval rating.

National Review Senior Writer David Harsanyi noted this week that DeSantis is far from the outlier in terms of a Republican being wildly popular as a governor; in fact, DeSantis is not even ranked among the top-10 most popular governors in the United States — all of whom are Republicans.
“When it comes to governorships, Florida isn’t an outlier. The last time the Morning Consult poll tabulated a list of the most popular governors, the top 14 — and 18 of the top 20 — were Republicans. These Republicans govern in states that have highly diverse electorates, from Alabama to Vermont,” Harsanyi wrote. “Which is weird, because this very week, progressives at the New York Times and the Atlantic were assuring us that the GOP was so reviled nationally — and its agenda so toxic to the average American — that the party has been compelled to hide from ‘democratic accountability.’”
DeSantis beat far-left Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, who was tangled up in an FBI corruption investigation, in November 2018 by approximately 33,000 votes.
