Results of SurveyUSA News Poll #26640
 
Little Change in Missouri Voter Approval Ratings for President Biden, Senator Hawley Since Mid-September, While Governor Parson Rises 5 Points:

SurveyUSA's exclusive approval rating tracking for Gray Television's Missouri stations (KMOV-TV in St. Louis, KCTV-TV in Kansas City, KYTV-TV in Springfield, KFVS-TV in Cape Girardeau, WGEM-TV in Quincy, IL; and KYOU-TV in Ottumwa, IA), and for KRCG-TV in Jefferson City and KOAM-TV in Pittsburg, KS., again shows little movement in the approval ratings for President Joe Biden (up a nominal single point since the previous poll) and Senator Josh Hawley (down 3 points and back in negative territory), while Governor Mike Parson rises 5 points to a new high. Subtracting disapproval from approval yields a Net Approval rating:
  • President Biden falls a single point, from Minus 28 in Mid-September to Minus 27 today. Biden has ranged between -32 and -27.
  • Senator Hawley, who had climbed 6 points from July to September, today falls back 3 to Minus 2.
  • Governor Parson climbs 5 to a Plus 10, his highest Net Approval since SurveyUSA began tracking in May, when he was at Plus 8.
