Despite placing 27th on the approval leaderboard among other governors, Abbott will likely get re-elected this year


Governor Greg DeSantis will likely get re-elected this year after placing number 27 on the approval rating survey with 41%, way below the Florida governor. Despite this, Governor Abbott could potentially get re-elected.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has received a 41% approval rating from a survey conducted by the Morning Consult, placing him 27th on the leaderboard of all current governors leading their respective states.

This poll surveyed 9,849 voters between January 1 and March 31, and from the results, 53% of those polled disapproved of Governor Abbott's leadership.

Despite this disappointing rating, Governor DeSantis will likely get re-elected, seeing as he is easily the second most "influential" Governor among Republicans, the first one being Governor Ron DeSantis.

Governor Abbott expressed on numerous occasions that he will be interested in seeking a third term in office this year -- even the GOP gave him a not -- and even began his campaign back in 2021 with donations.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott's administration has spent over $4 billion on its border control proclamation at the US-Mexico border, according to a Bloomberg report.

In January, Governor Abbott renewed this border security disaster proclamation he signed into power in May 2021 because "the Biden administration wasn't doing its job on the border".

Despite frustrations from Democratic lawmakers, internally, and even the National Guard members participating in the mission, these moves have positioned the Governor as a strong candidate among his opponents.

Governor Abbott enters the general election with more than $50 million to spend, a formidable campaign account that ranks among the largest of any governor in the country.

The Governor is running for a third term and has former President Donald Trump’s endorsement - despite the former president's allies sharing a different view over this seal of approval.
