BIDEN APPROVAL LOWEST SINCE JULY 2022 AS ATTITUDES TOWARD ECONOMY WORSEN

NEW YORK and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ —Stagwell (NASDAQ: STGW) today released the results of the June Harvard CAPS / Harris poll, a monthly collaboration between the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard (CAPS) and the Harris Poll and HarrisX.

President Joe Biden’s overall approval rating dropped to 40%, his lowest since July 2022, while inflation and immigration remained voters’ top two concerns. The poll also covers public opinion on the first presidential debate and immigration policy. Download key results here.

“The idea of the debate was to shake things up and break some of Trump’s momentum, but if anything it did the opposite,” said Mark Penn, Co-Director of the Harvard CAPS / Harris poll and Stagwell Chairman and CEO. “Public opinion also shows a dim view of the state of the economy and inflation, reinforcing the notion that Americans want change right now.”

DEBATE HURTS BIDEN, HELPS TRUMP

  • 74% of voters think Biden is too old to be President, an 11-point increase after the debate.
  • 66% of voters have doubts about Biden’s mental fitness for office, a 12-point increase after the debate.
  • Voters are on net 7 points more likely to vote for Trump after the debate and 20 points less likely to vote for Biden.

ATTITUDES TOWARD ECONOMY WORSEN

  • 62% of voters characterize their personal economics as fair or poor, up 7 points from May.
  • 52% of voters say their personal financial situation is getting worse, especially among Republican (69%) and rural (63%) voters.
  • Biden’s approval on handling inflation dropped to 34%, his lowest in two years.

TRUMP CONTINUES TO LEAD HORSE RACE

  • Trump leads Biden by 4 points in the horserace, down 2 points from last month.
  • 41% of voters (a plurality) say Trump’s guilty verdict in the New York hush money case has no impact on their vote, while 31% say they are more likely to vote for Trump and 27% say less likely.
  • Marco Rubio and Tim Scott are the VP nominees who would be most helpful to Trump.

IMMIGRATION-CRIME NEXUS CONTINUES TO CONCERN VOTERS

  • Voters say the top issues caused by mass immigration are an increase in violence/crime (57%), a strain on resources such as healthcare and education (57%), and a rise in homelessness (55%).
  • 56% of voters think Biden’s recent asylum ban for migrants caught illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border is “too little, too late.”
  • 52% of voters support Biden’s recent executive order aimed at expediting citizenship for the undocumented spouses of U.S. citizens.

SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL REMAINS HIGH

  • 64% of voters are paying close attention to the Israel-Hamas war, down 9 points from May, but support for Israel remains consistent at 80%.
  • 67% of voters say Israel should retaliate against Hezbollah until they stop firing rockets into the north (ages 18-24: 53%; ages 65+: 85%).

The June Harvard CAPS / Harris poll survey was conducted online within the United States on June 28-30, 2024, among 2,090 registered voters by The Harris Poll and HarrisX.

The Stagwell (STGW) agency will share guidance for communicators during the 2024 election cycle

NEW YORKJune 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The Harris Poll is once again sponsoring the Fierce Pharma PR & Communications Summit, the premier event dedicated to providing life science communicators with industry updates and best practices for successful communications strategies during today’s complex healthcare environment. The summit will be held July 8 and 9, 2024 in Jersey City, NJ. 

Michele Salomon, Vice President, The Harris Poll, will participate in a panel on July 8 providing guidance for communicators during the 2024 election cycle, one in which communicators face unprecedented challenges and opportunities in a landscape marked by political discourse. Featuring additional experts from Boehringer Ingelheim, National Pharmaceutical Council, Teva, and Weber Shandwick, the panel is tailored to equip industry professionals with essential insights on navigating the complexities of the ongoing campaign rhetoric and its impact on pharmaceuticals and biotech.

Salomon will share a variety of research from The Harris Poll to help communicators understand public sentiment as it relates to when, how, and why companies should address the election cycle.

“We see so much data about how the public is feeling and it’s not always clear they feel they are being listened to,” said Salomon. “The public is tired and scared, uncertain about many things on both a personal and political level, find the news stressful, and are unsure if they can talk about issues that matter to them.”

This environment is mirrored for companies and organizations, though the stakes are different. “Rather than putting a friend or family relationship in jeopardy if we speak up, companies risk their reputation, offending their customers, investors and other stakeholders. Our data helps explain the broader context while also providing specific guidance that communicators can put into practice,” says Salomon.

The panel will explore:

  • Strategies for responding to the growing political discourse and navigating the delicate balance between corporate communication and political influence
  • Actionable insights on building a proactive communication plan that anticipates and addresses the industry’s evolving landscape during the election season
  • How the industry is perceived in the context of political influence and lobbying and understand the implications
  • Crisis communication strategies tailored to address challenges specific to the election cycle, ensuring preparedness for potential reputational risks

The Harris Poll boasts decades of experience across the spectrum of health insurance companies, pharmaceutical/biotech/medical device companies, medical associations, nonprofit organizations, health and wellness companies and academia.

Stagwell’s (STGW) HarrisX to provide monthly statewide polling for preeminent Utah-based organizations in media and politics ahead of the 2024 elections

Program expands on monthly national polling being conducted by the Deseret News and HarrisX

SALT LAKE CITY and WASHINGTON, June 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — HarrisX, a leading public opinion research and data analytics firm, is excited to announce a new partnership with the Deseret News and the University of Utah’s Hinckley Institute of Politics to conduct a monthly Utah Voter Poll ahead of the 2024 Presidential Elections, and beyond.

The partnership will capitalize on HarrisX’s expertise in polling and data analysis, Deseret News’ extensive reach and experience in covering Utah politics and respected experts at the Hinckley Institute of Politics to produce regular insights and analysis on key issues and candidates in Utah.

The first poll was released on June 8, showing Utah Gov. Spencer Cox with a commanding lead over his primary challenger, state Rep. Phil Lyman, ahead of the June 25 primary election. Yet-to-be-released insights will focus on the public’s opinion on a new Utah hockey team, taxes, and business in the state.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Deseret News and the Hinckley Institute on this important project,” said Dritan Nesho, chief researcher and CEO of HarrisX. “And we’re stepping into big shoes with this partnership; this poll in the past was conducted by the legendary Utah pollster Dan Jones, a legacy we are honored to sustain.” Added Nesho: “Utah is an industrious and dynamic state, and we are committed to providing the public with the most accurate and up-to-date information possible on key issues facing them in their daily lives, in their business, and at the ballot box.”

“The Deseret News values this partnership with HarrisX and the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah. We are striving to provide our audience with a deeper understanding of the political landscape and the mind of the voter during the critical 2024 elections,” said Doug Wilks, executive editor of the Deseret News.

“We know experience makes the difference,” noted Jason Perry, director of the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah. “Partnering with HarrisX, an experienced national, multi-method pollster will bring voter’s perspectives to life, ensuring citizens and policymakers are well informed as important decisions are made that will determine the future of our nation and the state of Utah.”

Reporting on the polls will be released monthly in conjunction with the Hinckley Institute and will be available on the Deseret News’ website, deseret.com, and social media channels, as well as on HarrisX’s website and social channels.

Data and crosstabs around the polls will be available at the HarrisX website.

HarrisX was the most accurate pollster in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. With its history of Utah state polling and working with Deseret News, the company is well-positioned to highlight what Utah voters think on issues and candidates. Notable past collaborations between the Deseret News and HarrisX include a 2023 poll, which made waves online, revealing that most Republican voters see former President Trump as best reflecting their values and their faith compared to all GOP leaders; a poll detailing the shift of working-class voters from the Democratic Party to the GOP; and a retrospective survey examining voter attitudes toward the pandemic and vaccines.
