Raleigh, N.C. – Amy Klobuchar’s job approval ratings are not quite as lofty as when PPP last polled Minnesota in January, but still almost twice as many of her constituents like their freshman senator as dislike the work she is doing. Because of that, she leads her four unknown potential Republican opponents by almost identical margins.
57% approve and 29% disapprove of Klobuchar’s job performance, down a tick from 61-28 four months ago. 83% of Democrats, 61% of independents, and even 25% of Republicans think she is doing a good job.
At the same time, only 15-27% of the state’s voters claim to have an opinion on any of the GOP field, with Doc Severson the best-known and most popular. 17% see him favorably and 10% unfavorably. But his relative notoriety means little, for Klobuchar still leads him by 28 points (55-27), the same deficit as has Pete Hegseth (56-28), and larger than those faced by Joe Arwood (56-29) or Kurt Bills (55-29).
