Governor Ron DeSantis may be the most feared man on the planet.
That is, in the eyes of Democrats.
Two recently published reports have DeSantis at the top of the polls and the most feared man among Republicans.
Democrats were hoping to use DeSantis’ pandemic response to take him out in the 2022 election.
However, that does not appear likely.
Florida is thriving and currently has the lowest COVID rate in the country, so Floridians are loving the job he is doing.
His current approval rating is 56.4 and DeSantis is crushing every possible Democrat challenger in the upcoming race.

Not only that, but the big surge of residents in Florida has also benefitted DeSantis, as registered Republicans finally outnumber Democrats in the state.
The good news did not stop there, however.
A report by the Democrat Governor’s Association has tagged DeSantis as “unbeatable.”
The report now has Democrats worried if they should even consider focusing on Florida elections because of the sheer cost for a seat that may not even pan out.
We saw this during the 2020 election as well, where Democrats poured records amount of money into the state and still lost.
DeSantis remains atop the polls if Donald Trump decides not to run.
Ironically, Dems may soon start to hope Trump runs on the idea that if he does, the election would probably be far closer than if someone like DeSantis were to run.
Trump is still polling poorly among about a third of Republicans, independents, and moderate Democrats.
Many of the voters that would never vote for Trump would not think twice about voting for DeSantis.
That is surely something Trump will have to monitor and consider as the time to announce gets closer.
