As the 2024 election year approaches, voters continue to trust the GOP more on the key issue of taxes.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The survey found that 48% of likely U.S. voters trust Republicans more to handle taxes, while 41% trust Democrats more and 12% are not sure.
In January, the GOP was more trusted than Democrats by a 10-point margin, 47% to 37%.
Eighty-four percent (84%) of voters believe the issue of taxes will be important in the 2024 presidential election, including 45% who think the tax issue will be "very important."
Only 13% don’t think taxes will be important in next year’s election.
The Republican advantage on taxes is mainly due to their 19-point edge among independent voters.
Eighty-six percent (86%) of Republican voters and 80% of Democrats trust their own party more to handle taxes.
Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 49% trust Republicans more and 30% trust Democrats more on the tax issue, while 22% are not sure.
