Looking ahead to the 2024 Presidential Election, the economy is the top issue that Americans say will determine how they will vote in the election. When asked to select up to three issues that are most likely to determine how they vote in November 2024, 59% select the economy, 35% select healthcare, and 31% select abortion as determinative election issues.
The economy is the most-selected 2024 Election issue for both Donald Trump 2020 (67%) and Joe Biden 2020 (56%) voters. Other important election issues for Biden voters include healthcare (46%), abortion (42%), and the environment (26%), while 38% of Trump voters select immigration, 29% select government spending, and 24% select healthcare.
Our latest hypothetical voting intention finds Donald Trump leading Joe Biden by three points nationally.

A further 12% say they don’t know how they would vote (+4).
Large majorities of 2020 Donald Trump voters (84%, –) and Joe Biden voters (79%, -2) maintain that they would again vote for those respective candidates.
An alternative 2024 Kamala Harris campaign produces a lead of four points for the former President.

In this scenario, 9% say they don’t know how they will vote (–).
