COVID States Project: A 50-State COVID-19 Survey, Report #46: Executive Approval Update [open pdf - 6MB]
From the Document: "As part of the COVID [coronavirus disease] states project, we have been asking people in all 50 states about their approval of their governors and the President. Since our last report on executive approval [hyperlink], which examined trends through October, 2020, there have been radical shifts in the pandemic, with huge surges of cases and deaths, followed by a dramatic drop since January [hyperlink]. Changes in executive approval during this time have been more subtle. See Figure 1 for approval trends overall, and Figure 2 for these trends separated by partisanship. [...] There were some notable trends with respect to partisanship and approval after the election. Although state-by-state numbers according to partisanship are quite noisy because of small sample sizes (see margins of error due to sample size at the state level in Table 1), we identify three major patterns."
