The decade's most triggering comedy
A new mainstream poll found that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) ranks #1 in terms of highest net approval rating among all major American politicians.
The survey was conducted October 12-13 by the Center for American Political Studies (CAPS) at Harvard University, The Harris Poll, and HarrisX.
The poll asked respondents to rate top political figures in the U.S. as either very favorable, favorable, unfavorable, very unfavorable, never heard of them, or no opinion.
The politicians ranked in order were DeSantis (+6), former Vice President Mike Pence (+4), South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott (+3), former President Donald Trump (0), Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (0), Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz (0), former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (-3), President Joe Biden (-8), Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema (-9), Vice President Kamala Harris (-10), Democrat Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (-12), New York Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (-12), twice failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (-13), West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (-15), Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (-22), and Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (-22).
DeSantis is widely seen by many as the future of the Republican Party. His recent handling of Hurricane Ian has earned him praise from top political rivals, including Biden, who said that DeSantis was “pretty remarkable.”
