It’s easy to forget that Andrew Yang started the year polling around 0% – when he was included in the polls, that is.
Most pollsters didn’t start to include Andrew Yang by name until March and April, after his breakout podcast with Joe Rogan.
Since then, I’ve compiled Andrew Yangs poll results from some of the biggest pollsters, so that you can see how the past 6 months have progressed. See the animation here.
Not too long ago, the vast majority of Americans would not be able to pick Andrew Yang out of a lineup if their lives depended on it.
So while the polls are slowly going up, and allowing Andrew to qualify for further debates, the numbers for name recognition and favorability are even more encouraging. See the animation here.
Unfortunately, there are only numbers for the past 4 months for this metric, but nevertheless shows a clear and interesting trend.
