Voters Seek New Presidential Challengers, Believe Country and Economy are on the 'Wrong Track' in June Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll

NEW YORK, July 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Stagwell (NASDAQ: STGW) today released the findings of the July Harvard CAPS/ Harris Poll, a monthly research collaboration between the Harvard Center for American Political Studies and the Harris Poll, a Stagwell research & insights firm. Findings show the country's mood continues to worsen as voters feel the pinch of inflation where it hurts most, with 64% reporting their financial situation is getting worse, almost double from the offset of the pandemic.

Other topics covered in this month's poll: Biden approval rating, the 2024 Presidential candidate field, the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade, and more.

"This month's findings on the economy, Roe v. Wade, and the 2024 presidential elections are bad news for the incumbents and good news for challengers seeking to tap into American discontent," said Chairman of the Harvard-CAPS Harris Poll Mark Penn. "'Wrong track metrics' about the direction of the country and the economy are the worst they have ever been in our poll. And, crucially, our observed aversion to the former and current president as voters begin thinking about 2024 tickets is a major opening for an independent presidential ticket ? 60% would consider voting for a moderate independent candidate for president if Biden and Trump both ran."

Key Findings: 

The survey was fielded among 1,308 registered voters between June 28-29. Full findings can be found on the Harvard-CAPS Harris Poll website.. Follow the Harvard CAPS Harris Poll podcast at https://www.markpennpolls.com/  or on iHeart Radio, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other podcast platforms.
