REPUBLICAN Ron DeSantis is the 46th Governor of Florida, a position he's held since 2019.
Floridians have turned their backs on DeSantis', disapproving the governor's job handling the recent uptick in Covid cases, hospitalizations and death in the state.
What is Ron DeSantis' approval rating 2021?
In December 2021, it was declared that Governor DeSantis had gone missing amid the surging Omicron Covid cases in Florida.
A Harvard/Harris Poll asked: “If the 2024 election for President were held today and it was between Ron DeSantis, the Republican, and Joe Biden, the Democrat, who would you vote for?”
According to Florida Politics, Biden took a 43 percent share of respondents; DeSantis took 36 percent with an additional 22 percent saying they were unsure.
The Governor had 37 percent support against Harris, who had 42 percent. Again, 21 percent had not formed an opinion.
On August 31, the Morning Consult poll released a poll showing nearly half of all Florida voters now disapprove of the Republican governor's job performance.
DeSantis' approval rating has plummeted as Florida's Covid-19 cases have skyrocketed in recent months.
According to the market research company, among all voters, 48 percent now approve of DeSantis' job performance and 48 percent disapprove.
His approval rating dropped six percent, and his disapproval rating increased eight percent among all voters since July 1.
The percentage of Independent voters who disapprove of DeSantis' job performance rose 14 percentage points since the start of July.
At the start of July, only 38 percent disapproved of his job performance, and by the end of August – 51 percent disapproved.

Both DeSantis and Abbott have signed executive orders banning school districts and governmental authorities from imposing mask mandates.
