Status of Gallup Daily Tracking of Non-Election Metrics

Gallup, as of Wednesday, Oct. 31, has resumed measuring and reporting of its key daily economic and wellbeing metrics.  Averages posted to the home page on Thursday, Nov. 1, reflect rolling averages excluding Oct. 29 and Oct. 30, the two days that Gallup did not poll because of the effects of superstorm Sandy on the East Coast.

Gallup will resume daily tracking of President Barack Obama’s job approval rating on Monday, Nov. 5, and will post the first post-storm three-day rolling average on Thursday, Nov. 8.

Gallup plans to resume interviewing on election issues Thursday, Nov. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 4, to provide a final pre-election estimate of the presidential race along with attitudes about the candidates and election issues, while continuing to assess the impact of superstorm Sandy on these political measures. Gallup will also measure and report President Obama’s job approval rating from this one-time survey. Read more from Gallup Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport here.
