A new poll from the Wasan center at Christopher Newport University shows half of the registered voters approve of the job Governor Youngkin is doing and 59% want him to stay out of next year’s race for President. 59% of voters disapprove of the job President Biden is doing.
“Governor Youngkin’s approval ratings are significantly outperforming President Biden’s because he’s delivered on his promises,” Youngkin spokesperson Macaulay Porter said in a statement. “With $4 billion in tax relief for Virginians, the largest K-12 education budget in Virginia’s history and key efforts like Operation Bold Blue Line to keep our communities safe – the governor has brought people together around commonsense solutions and delivered results.”
Most voters, 59%, agree with Youngkin that parents should be informed before a teacher begins calling a student by a different pronoun. A majority of voters also agree with Youngkin on his plans to reduce taxes.

“On abortion, 43% of Virginia voters want to keep the laws in place, with 29% backing fewer restrictions and 23% wanting tighter rules on the procedure. Youngkin’s administration decried Senate Democrats Thursday who voted down three different Republican abortion restriction bills.”
“Sixty percent of Virginia voters also want recreational marijuana sales to begin, a process that has not started despite lawmakers passing a law decriminalizing possession of up to an ounce and allowing people to grow up to four plants in their homes.”
Governor Youngkin has not said if he would sign a bill permitting recreational marijuana sales as several other states have done.

Doesn’t matter if The Red Vest is in VA or out entertaining his ridiculous dream of being in the Senate or the White House.
Are you aware of the fact that just yesterday every school system in VA was informed that, because of a screw-up by Youngkin and the dunces he put in the State Dept of Education there is a $201 MILLION SHORTFALL in state support to local schools. The loss of this money 3/4 of the way through the current year will hit rural and small systems very hard. The loss will continue into next school year with near-disastrous results for small and rural schools. The big ones — Fairfax County, Loudoun County, and the like can find the revenue. Out here in the boondocks, we can barely scrape together the money to put a new roof on the 30-yr-old elementary school.
And how did this happen? It happened because The Red Vest spent all of 2022 chasing around the country, campaigning for Republicans in 15 states, hoping for their support when he runs for President. How did he do? Of the 15 candidates for whom he campaigned, 11 lost. Three of the four who won were in safe seats, so, he really had only one win out of 15.
Meanwhile, back home, The Red Vest was abolishing the grocery tax. Problem is, most of the grocery tax revenue went to schools in the localities where the tax was collected. The Red Vest did NOTHING to replace this revenue. Instead, the Dept of Education notified all state school systems “Sorry, we screwed up. You will; just have to suck it up.”
Youngkin was a failure at Carlyle and is a failure as governor.
He is needed in the U.S. Senate.
Maybe he could get a job as a janitor in the Senate. Assuming he knows how to push a broom.
