A new poll published this week shows Republican governor of Florida Ron DeSantis with a significant edge over the Democrat opponents who seek to unseat him.
DeSantis is ahead of Rep. Charlie Crist (D), state Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried (D) and state Sen. Annette Taddeo (D), according to the poll, and if the vote were held today the poll showed he would receive 44 percent of the vote.
DeSantis, who won in 2020 by a very slim majority against former mayor of Tallahassee, Andrew Gillum, has a 53 percent approval rating in Florida. His disapproval rating is 43 percent, and 4 percent were unsure.
The poll shows DeSantis with an 8-point lead over his biggest competitor, Charlie Crist, an 11-point lead over Fried, and a sixteen-point lead over Sen. Taddeo.
DeSantis has been rumored to be exploring a 2024 presidential run, so his performance in the upcoming election will be a likely indicator of his path forward.
