TRUMP JOB APPROVAL: AVERAGE 43%
Up 1 from Thursday
RON’S COMMENT: Trump’s job approval rating is now almost 4 points below the popular vote percentage he received in November (43% vs. 46.9%)…. Today’s average is based on four polls, ranging from 40% (Reuters) to 46% (Rasmussen). Without these extremes it would be 42%.... Trump’s disapproval rating averages 55% today…. See the trend in Trump’s job approval average since the beginning of 2020 at approval trend.

U.S. SENATE: RUNOFFS
Among voters statewide
GEORGIA (Special Election)
(Trafalgar-R) Raphael Warnock (D) over Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R): +1 (50-49)
GEORGIA (Regular Election)
(Trafalgar-R) Jon Ossoff (D) over Sen. David Perdue (R): +2 (50-48)
RON’S COMMENT: This poll should concern Republicans; it confirms improved numbers for the Democrats…. Trafalgar’s previous polling had Perdue up by 2 points and Loeffler up by 6 points. Now both Democrats are running slightly ahead…. Trafalgar’s polling is known for showing Republican candidates doing better than many other polls. In fact, in November, their pre-election polling had Trump winning five states that Biden carried (Nevada, Georgia, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Michigan).
