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.
