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, 55% select the economy, 36% select healthcare, and 30% select abortion as determinative election issues.
The economy is the most-selected 2024 Election issue for both Donald Trump 2020 (65%) and Joe Biden 2020 (51%) voters. Other important election issues for Biden voters include healthcare (45%), abortion (37%), and the environment (32%), while 36% of Trump voters select immigration, 27% select healthcare, and 27% select government spending.
Our latest hypothetical voting intention finds Joe Biden tied with Donald Trump nationally. After weighing by likelihood to vote, 43% of respondents say they would vote for Biden (+1) and 43% say they would vote for Trump (+2) if they were candidates in 2024. A further 9% say they don’t know how they would vote (-3).
Large majorities of 2020 Donald Trump voters (85%, -2) and Joe Biden voters (83%, +1) 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. If Donald Trump and Kamala Harris are the 2024 nominees, 43% of Americans say they will vote for Trump (+1) and 39% say they will vote for Harris (-2). In this scenario, 11% say they don’t know how they will vote (+1).
