Biden lost Florida last November no surprise….
But Florida Governor Ron DeSantis only has a 2% point margin of approval al over disapproval….
Seems like his pandemic policies are causing him problems…
For the guy who was looking like he could steal the lead for Donald Trump a few months ago?
NOT a Good Look…..
A MAJORITY of Florida voters do NOT want DeSantis to run FOR President in 2024……
A majority of Florida voters disapprove of President Joe Biden’s job performance, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday.
Roughly 53 percent of respondents gave Biden negative marks, compared with 40 percent who approved of the president’s performance seven months into his tenure. Another 7 percent said they were unsure, with the poll carrying a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points….

DeSantis has become a lightning rod across the U.S. for his administration’s handling of Covid-19, which has simultaneously elevated his standing among conservatives while making him a high-profile villain on the left. A majority of the Florida voters surveyed, 51 percent, disapproved of DeSantis’ pandemic track record, compared with 46 percent who supported the governor’s approach.
While DeSantis’s handling of coronavirus is a drag on him now, he was in worse shape during last summer’s wave, according to a July 23, 2020, Quinnipiac pollthat showed only 38 percent approved of the way he managed the pandemic at the time while 57 percent disapproved. That put his net approval at -11 percentage points last year, more than double what it is now — even though cases, hospitalizations and deaths are exceeding the last wave’s numbers in Florida overall….
