A poll released this week by the Florida Chamber of Commerce shows Gov. Ron DeSantis in good shape after a month and a half in office.

DeSantis is approved by a majority–58 percent–of those surveyed while 13 percent disapprove of him and 29 percent are not sure. Asked how things in Florida are going, 54 percent say Florida is headed in the right direction while a quarter–25 percent–think the state is on the wrong track and 21 percent are not sure.

Mark Wilson, the president and CEO of the Florida Chamber, praised DeSantis on Tuesday when the poll was released.

“From the day he was elected, Governor Ron DeSantis has worked on a common agenda with us to keep the momentum going in Florida,” said Wilson. “From appointing three new Florida Supreme Court justices dedicated to upholding the Constitution, to strengthening educational opportunities, Governor DeSantis is leading and working to secure Florida’s future.”

Asked what issues they want to see the Legislature address when it meets in regular session next month, Florida voters offered a host of answers with 13 percent saying education is the top issue, while 11 percent point to jobs and the economy, another 11 percent think the environment is the biggest concern while 10 percent say healthcare and 8 percent say immigration.

The Florida Chamber of Commerce political poll was conducted on February 5-10, 2019 by Cherry Communications during live telephone interviews of likely voters, and has a margin of error of +/- 4 percent. The sample size included 245 Democrats, 244 Republicans and 120 Others for a total of 609 respondents statewide. The samples for the polls conducted by the Florida Chamber are consistently drawn from likely voters and newly registered voters, meaning those voters who have the propensity and past performance of voting in elections, rather than simply including registered voters.  Voters are again screened for likelihood of voting.
