Poll: Florida Gov. DeSantis’s Approval at Over 60 Percent among Minority Voters

A new poll shows across-the-board support for GOP Governor Ron DeSantis.

National Review reports:

A new statewide poll of Florida conducted by Saint Leo University shows across-the-board support for Republican governor Ron DeSantis, including consistently high approval ratings among minority voters.

The poll found that DeSantis’s overall approval rating is up to 68.2 percent, seven points higher than it was in April and clearly ahead of those of Florida senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio. According to a demographic breakdown of the poll shared on Twitter, DeSantis polled at 67 percent approval among Hispanics and 63 percent among African Americans.

While the governor’s Hispanic support has remained consistently positive over the last three statewide polls, the new St. Leo poll shows the highest level of black support for DeSantis so far recorded. In an August St. Petersburg poll, DeSantis hit 32 percent approval among African Americans, while an October University of North Florida poll put DeSantis at 50 percent. Earlier this year, black support was at 44 and 39 percent in two other polls, respectively.
