Republicans hold a significant advantage over Democrats on the issue of the economy, with independent voters favoring the GOP by a 33-point margin.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The online survey found that 49% of likely U.S. voters trust Republicans more to handle the economy, while 39% trust Democrats more.
Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. These findings are nearly unchanged since May.
Eighty percent (80%) of Republicans trust their party more to handle the economy, while 77% of Democrats trust their party more.
Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 54% trust Republicans more to handle the economy, compared to 21% who trust Democrats more.
That 33-point advantage for the GOP among unaffiliated voters on economic issues is larger than the 26-point edge Republicans had in May.
Ninety percent (90%) of all likely voters believe economic issues will be important in the 2024 presidential election, including 65% who expect economic issues to be very important.
