As Gov. Ron DeSantis' popularity continues to rise in Florida, so does his recognition on a national level. Just six months since taking office and DeSantis has already made a top 10 most popular governors list.
A poll released by Morning Consult on Thursday shows that DeSantis is among the most popular governors in the U.S., receiving a 57 percent approval rating from Florida voters. Likewise, only 28 percent disapprove of his performance.
With this high approval rating, DeSantis comes in at No. 10 out of 50 governors. All of the top governors ranked in the poll are Republicans, with the top two spots being held by Govs. Charlie Baker of Massachusetts and Larry Hogan of Maryland.
Out of all the governors who made the list, DeSantis continues to be one of President Donald Trump's biggest allies. DeSantis' close relationship with Trump has resulted in the two appearing at numerous campaign events together.
