The GOP governors for four states are seeing their approval ratings drop significantly as the coronavirus continues to spike, according to a report from Axios.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp all saw disapproval ratings of 55 percent or higher in a survey that was conducted in mid-July. Ducey and DeSantis had the highest disapproval ratings, topping out at 62 and 58 percent.

Interestingly, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is seeing a huge surge of the virus in his state, but his approval ratings have stayed relatively the same. California saw 12,800 new cases on Wednesday.
