According to the recent Voters' Voices Poll by The Center Square, conducted in partnership with Noble Predictive Insights, inflation and price increases are a major concern for voters across different political affiliations in anticipation of the 2024 presidential election. Out of the 2,500 registered voters surveyed, a significant majority, 44%, ranked inflation among their top three issues.
Among Republican participants, half of those surveyed identified inflation as one of their top three concerns, followed closely by illegal immigration at 42%, government corruption at 26%, and the economy/jobs at 25%. Independent voters also ranked inflation as their top issue, with 40% recognizing its importance. Crime/violence (28%), economy/jobs (26%), government corruption, and illegal immigration (both 22%) were also noted as key concerns for this group.
Democratic voters viewed climate change as their primary concern, with 44% identifying it as a top issue. Following closely behind was inflation at 40%, abortion rights at 35%, crime/violence at 30%, and health care access at 29%.
Inflation was a significant concern across all three political groups, as Mike Noble, founder and CEO of Noble Predictive Insights pointed out. It is anticipated that discussions surrounding inflation will be a prominent feature throughout the upcoming election.
Crime/violence emerged as a slightly higher concern for Democrats (30%) and independents (28%) compared to Republicans (24%). Interestingly, independent voters aligned more closely with Republicans on several key issues, such as national debt/government spending, illegal immigration, and government corruption. However, they showed more similarity to Democrats on issues like health care access and climate change.
The Voters' Voices Poll was conducted by Noble Predictive Insights from July 31 to August 3, employing a sample size of 2,500 respondents: 1,000 registered Republicans, 1,000 registered Democrats, and 500 independents. Unlike traditional national polls with limited participant counts, this survey aimed to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of voter sentiment. The aggregate sample had a margin of error of ±2.4%, with each political group independently weighted.
