Democrat voters are the least likely to deem the U.S. economy and immigration-related issues to be “very important” considerations in the 2024 presidential election, a new Rasmussen survey reveals.

In a national survey of U.S. likely voters, conducted December 26-28, respondents were asked to rate the importance of issues in the 2024 presidential race.

In the midst of a raging illegal immigration border crisis, and an economy in which many Americans have seen their financial situation deteriorate, Democrats are far less likely than others to rate the two issues as “very important”:

Economic issues “Very Important” in the 2024 Presidential Election:

  • Democrats: 59%
  • Republicans: 78%
  • Other Affiliations: 76%
  • All Likely Voters: 71%


Immigration-Related Issues “Very Important” in the 2024 Presidential Election:

  • Democrats: 48%
  • Republicans: 75%
  • Other Affiliations: 70%
  • All Likely Voters: 64%


A recent Rasmussen survey found that 41% of American adults say their financial situation has gotten worse – more than twice the 17% who report that it’s improved.

Likewise, half (49%) of today's likely voters think Pres. Biden's handling of the economy has been "poor," while 37% give it a positive rating, another Rasmussen survey found.

However, 62% of Democrats rate Biden’s handling of the economy as either good or excellent, compared to only 16% of Republicans and 29% of unaffiliated voters.

Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans and 55% of unaffiliated voters give Biden a poor rating on the economy, compared to 19% of Democrats.
