Federal weighted polling averages

The following are ThreeHundredEight's federal weighted polling averages. These weighted averages were last updated on January 13, 2017.

The arrows show whether a party has gained or lost support since previous updates. Multiple arrows mean the party has gained or lost support in consecutive updates (to a limit of three).
Polls included in the aggregation are weighted by date, sample size, and the track record of the polling firm. Full methodological details can be found here.
