Views of the president’s handling of the outbreak are underwater in Georgia and North Carolina, as they are in the country as a whole – but nonetheless bolstered by Republicans who say he is doing a good job, even if many of them aren’t saying he’s doing a very good job.

The President is seen as better than Biden on the economy in Georgia, but only marginally better in North Carolina. In the case of the latter, that still isn’t enough to give him a lead.
