About Morning Consult Political Intelligence

On a daily basis, Morning Consult surveys over 5,000 registered voters across the United States. Along with approval ratings for senators, Political Intelligence tracks the 2020 election as well as the approval ratings for all governors, House members, the president and more at the national, state and congressional district level. Each week, we will release a report with the most important findings on the 2020 election. Sign up to receive that report in your inbox here.

Results from the most recent update

Morning Consult conducted 494,899 surveys with registered U.S. voters from October 1 through December 31, 2019, to determine the Q4 2019 Senator Rankings.

The margins of error vary by state and party. You can see the margin of error for each senator here.

In each poll, Americans indicated whether they approve or disapprove of the job performance of their U.S. senators. For each question, they could answer strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, strongly disapprove, or don’t know / no opinion.

Morning Consult obtained an up-to-date list of senators from Sunlight Foundation’s Congress API v3 and Open States API. Survey respondents were assigned to their appropriate senators based on their state of residence.

Morning Consult obtained population parameters for registered voters from the November 2016 Current Population Survey. We applied post-stratification weights based on gender, age, educational attainment and race.
