Poll: Interest in presidential election hits two-decade low of 64% despite tight Biden-Trump rematch
By Laura Harris // Apr 24, 2024

The latest national NBC News poll reveals that voter interest in a presidential election has plummeted to its lowest point in nearly two decades.

According to the poll, only 64 percent of registered voters expressed high interest levels in the upcoming election in November by giving a rating of nine or 10 on a 10-point scale of interest.

The figure falls notably short of the levels recorded during the 2008, 2012, 2016 and 2020 elections, when an average of 74 percent, 67 percent, 69 percent and 77 percent of voters, respectively, expressed high levels of interest in the vote.

The last time interest in elections got this low was in March 2012, when only 59 percent of registered voters expressed high interest levels in the upcoming vote. But this level of interest quickly ticked up to 67 percent the following month.

The NBC News poll, conducted from April 12 to 16, also sheds light on disparities in interest levels across party lines, with 70 percent of self-identified Republicans expressing high interest in the upcoming elections compared to 65 percent of Democrats.

Meanwhile, only 48 percent of independents and a mere 36 percent of voters aged 18 to 34 have indicated high interest in the election.

Voter sentiments, with a pervasive sense of discontent and apathy toward the available candidates, are reflected in the poll. The majority of voters hold negative views of both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump. (Related: Survey reveals dissatisfaction among Californians for Biden and Congress ahead of 2024 elections.)

Devin Fletcher, a respondent from Wayne, Michigan who is a registered Democrat, voiced his skepticism about the efficacy of Biden and Trump.

"I don't think Biden has done much as a president. And if Trump gets elected, I just feel like it's going to be the same thing as it was before Biden got elected," said Fletcher. "I just don't feel like I have a candidate that I’m excited to vote for."

Another voter from New Jersey, who chose to remain anonymous, echoed this sentiment. He cites a lack of confidence in the candidates so, she decided not to vote in November.

"Our candidates are horrible. I have no interest in voting for Biden. He did nothing. And I absolutely will not vote for Trump," she said.

Americans do not believe in the integrity of elections anymore

Political analysts have noted that this decline in interest has been consistent and relatively stagnant over recent months.

"Americans don't agree on much these days, but nothing unites the country more than voters' desire to tune this election out," said Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates, who co-conducted the survey.

Similarly, Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies, who also co-conducted the survey, warned the public that the declining interest in the election could foreshadow lower voter turnout than in previous years.

"It makes it very hard for us to predict turnout this far in advance of November, but every signal is turnout will be a lower percentage of eligible voters than in 2020," he said.

Moreover, a Rasmussen Reports survey, conducted among 1,029 voters between Nov. 13 and Nov. 15, 2023 reveals that 56 percent of participants believe cheating is likely to happen in the 2024 presidential election, while 51 percent believe mail-in ballots make it easier to cheat.

These results were backed by the data from the Heritage Foundation’s Election Fraud Database, wherein proven instances of voter fraud list nearly 1,500 cases with over 1,200 criminal convictions over the year and with different politicians.

In other words, Americans who think there might be voter fraud in 2024 are likely the same ones who believe that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump. Dishonest and rigged elections through the years have only bolstered their belief that the integrity of the American electoral system is compromised.

"To restore confidence in our elections, we need to enact a single day of voting, require voter identification, adopt paper ballots only and require that hand-tabulated results are announced within 24 hours. Acceptable exceptions for military personnel and the disabled are assumed," wrote Laura Wellington for the Western Journal.
