Vice President Kamala Harris’ net approval rating stands at -5% (-1)

In our latest poll, 44% disapprove (+3) and 39% approve (+2) of Kamala Harris’ performance as Vice President.

The economy (58%), abortion (36%), and healthcare (33%) are the top three choices when American voters are asked to name the most important issues facing the country today.

The economy is the most-selected issue for both Donald Trump (68%) and Joe Biden (51%) voters at the last election. Other important issues for Trump voters include immigration (42%), healthcare (26%), and abortion (25%), while 46% of Biden voters select abortion, 40% select healthcare, and 26% select the environment.

Our latest hypothetical voting intention finds Joe Biden now leads Donald Trump by one point nationally, his second-consecutive lead in our hypothetical Presidential Voting Intention poll, having previously not led Trump since 25 June last year.

After weighing by respondents’ self-declared likelihood to vote, 41% (-2) say they would vote for Biden and 40% (-2) say they would vote for Trump if they were candidates in 2024. 7% (+2) would vote for Robert F. Kennedy Jr., while a further 7% (+1) say they don’t know how they would vote.

In a tight election, with many states likely to be settled by only a few thousand votes, any movement of Biden 2020 voters to Trump or Trump 2020 voters to Biden could make the key difference. 

As it stands, more Trump 2020 voters now say they will vote for Biden (5%) than Biden 2020 voters say they will vote for Biden (3%). Donald Trump retains the support of 83% of those who voted for him in 2020, while 79% of those who voted for Joe Biden in the last Presidential Election say they will do so again. Among those who did not vote in 2020 the candidates are tied on 27% each. 

For the first time since July 2023, more Americans now think Joe Biden would be more likely to win the Presidential Election than Donald Trump, if both are candidates for the main parties. 
39% (+3) of Americans currently say they think Joe Biden would be more likely to win in a contest between the two men, while 36% (-5) think Donald Trump would be more likely to win. 14% (+2) believe it would be a toss-up.
