As Beto O’Rourke enters the presidential race, he is in fourth place among Democratic hopefuls with 6% of the vote.
Twenty-three percent (23%) of voters nationwide have a favorable opinion of the former Congressman. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey last week found that 25% have an unfavorable view and 52% have either never heard of him or don’t know enough to have an opinion.
Among Democrats, 41% have a positive view of O’Rourke and 10% offer a negative assessment. Half (50%) don’t know him. Those figures include 12% with a Very Favorable opinion and 4% with a Very Unfavorable view (see crosstab results).
Last December, shortly after losing a very close Senate race in Texas, O’Rourke had higher name recognition and higher favorable ratings.
