Less than three months from the midterm elections, a new USA Today/Ipsos poll finds that former President Trump continues to be seen as the head of the Republican party, as a majority of Republican voters1 believe that he can win the next presidential election and shouldbe the party’s nominee in 2024. In contrast, Democratic voters2 are less enthusiastic about President Biden, and a slim majority believe he should not run for re-election in 2024. In the wake of the Inflation Reduction Act’s passage, the American public gives the Democratic Party an advantage over the Republican Party on the ability to push their agenda through Washington. However, the GOP holds the advantage on being good for the economy, at a time when inflation/increasing costs are the single most important issue to Americans.
