2024 U.S. Election Watch Report | May 2024

Our definitive monthly guide to American voters' views of issues and candidates

Report summary

The 2024 U.S. elections are shaping up to be another monumental moment in America’s modern history, and Morning Consult’s high-frequency tracking capabilities will provide political observers with an essential source of public opinion data to help them keep a finger on the pulse of the nation.

On a daily and weekly basis, Morning Consult Political Intelligence surveys thousands of registered U.S. voters on how they view their politicians at the national and state level and whom they currently plan to vote for. We also track the issues voters consider most important when making their decisions at the ballot box, whom they trust most to handle those issues and the extent to which media coverage of those issues is reaching them.

Each month, the 2024 U.S. Election Watch report will provide a comprehensive look at what the U.S. electorate thinks about the major issues and personalities around this year’s contests, including the presumptive general election matchup between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, and how potential shifts in issue importance may favor either party next November.

Methodology

All national- and state-level data presented in this report reflects monthly or daily roll-ups of views among registered voters derived from three sources: (1) interviews from Morning Consult’s daily U.S. tracking survey, (2) weekly interviews from a nationally representative survey on the 2024 U.S. elections through April 2024, and (3) monthly interviews from a seven-state survey conducted in partnership with Bloomberg News.

Consult our 2024 U.S. Presidential Election Methodology primer for additional details on both data sources, including sampling and data collection procedures, weighting and representativeness, margins of error, and question wording.
