A new poll shows Gov. Ron DeSantis in excellent shape with Florida voters.
Mason Dixon released a poll on Thursday morning which finds 62 percent of voters in the Sunshine State approve of DeSantis while around a quarter–24 percent–disapprove of him while 12 percent are not sure.
DeSantis stands strong in all parts of the state though there is a slight gender gap on him as 68 percent of men approve of him while 58 percent of women do. He does better with voters 50 and older than those 49 and younger. While 57 percent of voters under 50 approve DeSantis, 66 percent of voters 50 and older approve of him.
There is also a major racial divide over DeSantis. More than two-thirds of white voters—68 percent–approve of DeSantis while 20 percent disapprove of him. Black voters are almost evenly divided with 39 percent of them approving of the governor while 38 percent disapprove of him. DeSantis has the support of a majority of Hispanics as 53 percent approve of him and 30 percent disapprove of him.
DeSantis is in excellent shape with Republicans as 87 percent of them approve of him and only 6 percent disapprove of him. Despite his close win over Democrat Andrew Gillum in November, DeSantis does surprisingly well on the other side of the aisle with 41 percent of Democrats approving of him with the same percentage of them disapproving of him. DeSantis also has the support of a majority of independents as 59 percent of them approve of him and only 25 percent disapprove of him.
The poll of 625 registered voters in Florida was taken from March 18 through March 20 and had a margin of error of +/- 4 percent.
