Fifty-five percent (55%) of voters nationwide approve of the way that President-elect Biden has handled his role. A Political IQ survey found that 37% disapprove and 7% are not sure.

The totals include 31% who Strongly Approve and 25% who Strongly Disapprove.

Eighty-two percent (82%) of Black voters provide Biden with a positive review. So do 67% of Hispanic voters and 48% of White voters.

Sixty percent (60%) of government workers approve of Biden’s performance so far. So do 58% of those who work in the private sector. However, just 49% of retirees share that view.

Sixty-five percent (65%) of those with a college degree approve. Among those without a degree, Biden earns positive reviews from 49% and negative reviews from 42%.

The survey was conducted in the days immediately leading up to the Electoral College confirmation of Biden as the President-elect. The numbers are little changed from the week before when 54% offered their approval.


The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from December 10-12, 2020. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 199 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. Online respondents were selected from a list of Registered Voters and through a process of Random Digital Engagement. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
