Voter Sentiment Shifts: Gallup Poll Reveals Key Insights Ahead of 2024 Election


A new Gallup poll reveals significant shifts in voter sentiment as the 2024 presidential election approaches, highlighting critical issues and voter enthusiasm levels. Immigration has emerged as the top concern for American voters, marking the third consecutive month it has outpaced other pressing issues like the economy and government performance​.

According to the poll, 27% of respondents identified immigration as the most important problem facing the country, followed by 18% who cited government concerns and 17% who pointed to the economy. Inflation was mentioned by 13% of those surveyed​.The poll also underscores the shifting allegiances among key demographic groups. The Democratic Party is experiencing a notable decline in support among Black and Hispanic voters. Historically strong backing from these groups has eroded, with the percentage of Black adults identifying as Democrats dropping from 77% in 2020 to 66% in 2023. Similarly, Hispanic support for Democrats has fallen from a 28-point lead in 2020 to just 12 points in 2023​ ​.

In contrast, the Republican Party is seeing gains among white voters and those without college education. This demographic shift could be pivotal in the upcoming election, particularly as former President Donald Trump appears to be the likely Republican nominee.

The poll further reveals that political independents continue to be the largest voting bloc in the U.S., with 43% of adults identifying as independents. This group’s influence is expected to be significant in the 2024 election, which is widely anticipated to be a rematch between President Joe Biden and Trump​.

Enthusiasm levels also show a stark contrast between the two major parties. The survey indicates that 59% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents are more enthusiastic about voting in 2024 compared to four years ago. In comparison, 55% of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents report higher enthusiasm for the upcoming election​ ​.

President Biden's approval ratings remain a challenge, with only 38% of voters believing he deserves a second term. This figure, while slightly improved from previous years, is the lowest among recent presidents at this point in their terms. In contrast, former President Trump held a 50% approval rating at a similar juncture in his presidency​​.

As immigration continues to dominate voter concerns, the GOP's hardline stance on the issue could bolster its appeal among voters disillusioned with current policies. The poll shows that Republicans are significantly more likely to prioritize immigration, with 48% of GOP respondents citing it as the most pressing issue, compared to just 8% of Democrats​.

These insights from the Gallup poll suggest a turbulent and closely contested election season ahead, with voter sentiment and party allegiances shifting in ways that could reshape the political landscape. The poll’s findings highlight the critical importance of addressing voter concerns and mobilizing support across diverse demographic groups as candidates prepare for the 2024 race.


  1. If popularity ratings were votes Biden wouldn’t stand a chance of being re-elected, but with absentee voting, ballot harvesting and clustered voting rosters that prohibit verifications, Biden could have another mysterious, questionable win this November, and if so, this nation will go down the tubes, economically, socially, militarily, and our safety and our security will be seriously jeopardized!
