In a recent Political IQ poll of likely Georgia voters, 53% said they either strongly or somewhat approved of the way President Trump was handling his job. 53% also said they strongly or somewhat approved of the way Joe Biden was performing his job as President-elect.
The poll, conducted by Scott Rasmussen, found that 46% strongly or somewhat disapproved of President Trump’s job performance, and 2% were not sure. 41% strongly or somewhat disapproved of the job Joe Biden was doing as President-elect, with 6% unsure.
In terms of age bracket, 58% of those 65 and older approved of President Trump, while 47% felt the same way about President-elect Biden. 68% of those 18-24 approved of the President-elect, while 34% of that age group approved of President Trump.
There are two Senate seats up for grabs in Georgia in a run-off election on January 5th. Voters will decide if Republican incumbents David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler will keep their seats over Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and David Warnock.
The Political IQ poll found both races close in terms of favorability ratings. 51% of likely voters viewed Perdue very or somewhat favorably, while 43% had a very or somewhat unfavorable view. 6% were not sure. That compared to 50% with a very or somewhat favorable view of Ossoff, 44% with a very or somewhat unfavorable view, and 6% unsure.
47% of voters found Loeffler very or somewhat favorable, while 45% found her very or somewhat unfavorable, and 8% were not sure. 50% found her competitor Warnock either very or somewhat favorable, while 42% held an unfavorable view, and 9% were not sure. Tomorrow, Political IQ will be releasing which candidates voters intend to vote for in the two Senate races. Then, we’ll be going back in the field with a more comprehensive survey of attitudes and perceptions of Georgians to provide a better voter-centric view of the race.
The survey of 1,377 Likely Voters in Georgia was conducted by Scott Rasmussen from November 19-24, 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. A total of 1,500 Registered Voters were interviewed and asked about their likelihood of voting. For purposes of this survey, likely voters were defined as those who say they are at least somewhat likely to vote. Certain quotas were applied and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, and political party to reasonably reflect the state’s population. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population. The margin of sampling error: +/- 2.6 percentage points.
