November 2023 U.S. Political Trends in 10+ Charts

November 2023
Chart Pack

Report summary

This collection of charts showcases Morning Consult’s exclusive survey data on the 2024 elections and key political issues.

Chart Pack highlights:

  • President Joe Biden’s advantage over former President Donald Trump has evaporated in recent months. The GOP presidential front-runner now holds a small lead over the incumbent nationally. One contributing factor is the tightening race for younger voters, among whom Biden’s lead over Trump has declined 9 percentage points since December 2022. 
  • The economy remains the most important issue on voters’ minds. Our data also shows the issues that Black and Hispanic voters care about most are unique relative to the overall population, and that few voters want Congress to prioritize funding for Israel and Ukraine over domestic matters. 
  • Looking down ballot, New Jersey’s Bob Menendez now holds the title of most unpopular incumbent senator up for re-election next year. Meanwhile, the four incumbent governors running for re-election in 2024 are all popular in their home states.
  • Despite hand-wringing in some Democratic circles about Biden’s advanced age and fitness for office, roughly 3 in 4 of the party’s voters want him to run for re-election — a marked increase from about a year ago. Biden also holds an overwhelming 69-point lead over his Democratic primary challengers Dean Phillips and Marianne Williamson.
