The latest Political IQ national survey found that 52% of voters nationwide approve of the way that President-elect Biden has handled his role. That’s down three points compared to two weeks ago.
At this point, it’s too early to know whether this is merely statistical noise or the beginning of a trend. Results in the coming weeks will provide clarity on that point.
The Political IQ survey found that 37% disapprove and 11% are not sure. The totals include 27% who Strongly Approve and 23% who Strongly Disapprove.
The President-elect receives better reviews from voters under 45 than he does from older voters. He also does better among those with a college degree than those without.
White voters are evenly divided: 46% approve and 43% disapprove. However, 74% of Black voters and 59% of Hispanic voters provide Biden with a positive review.
The online survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen from December 26-27, 2020. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Respondents were contacted online or via text. They 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.
