https://www.yahoo.com/news/losing-alrea ... 53546.htmlIt seems the governor might want to focus less on the question “How can I stop wokeness?” and more on “Why am I losing to someone who keeps getting arrested?"So to recap, the much-ballyhooed conservative warrior from Florida is up against a candidate who lost the last presidential election, was impeached twice by the House of Representatives, fomented an attack on the U.S. Capitol, was recently found liable for sexual abuse in a civil lawsuit, is under state and federal indictment with two other serious investigations pending and spends most of his time writing conspiratorial nonsense in all-caps on his own social media site … and DeSantis is not just losing but losing badly.

Guess what? People like Disney a lot more than they like Ron DeSantis.
That whole kerfuffle is working out great for DeSantis. A new Navigator poll found that over the past year, Disney’s net favorability rating dropped only 1 point, with 63% of Americans having a favorable view of the entertainment giant.
The same poll found that since November, DeSantis’ net favorability has fallen 16 points, with 32% of Americans having a favorable view of the man Trump dubbed “Ron DeSanctimonious.”
Among registered voters, the poll found 50% of voters side with Disney in its battle with DeSantis, while only 33% side with the governor. What’s worse, a sizable 17% of voters aren’t even aware of the whole ridiculous conflict, which has to really hurt if you're DeSantis.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has seen his popularity crater in recent months, even after announcing that he’s running for president. One of his former colleagues says he knows why.
Former Rep. David Jolly (R-Fla.), who served in the House at the same time as DeSantis, said on MSNBC on Thursday that it’s because the governor is a “uniquely unlikeable person.”
“As you get to know him, you discover it’s this odd mix of vanity and paranoia and kind of the smartest-person-in-the-room complex,” Jolly said. “The problem is the moment that he demonstrates his intelligence he says things that are antithetical to science and history and law and the Constitution, and it leaves people kind of scratching their head.” ...
