46% of registered voters approved of how President Trump is doing his job this week, essentially unchanged from 45% last week.  The Political IQ Poll, conducted by Scott Rasmussen, found 51% disapproved of Trump’s job performance this week, compared to 53% last week.

The findings point to remarkable stability given all that has gone on in recent weeks. They highlight the strong political polarization in our society.

When broken out by party, the results further reflect the political divide.  85% of registered Republicans approved of Trump’s job performance this week.  That’s almost the same as last week’s mark of 86%. 

Just 14% of registered Democrats gave Trump a thumb’s up, two points higher than last week.  The survey had a margin of error of 2.8%.

Methodology

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from November 19-21, 2020. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 249 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 to the larger sample and 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.  Margin of sampling error: +/-2.8 percentage points.
