Crypto Dominates Voters’ Minds in US Swing States – Harris Poll

According to a survey conducted by the Digital Currency Group (DCG) and The Harris Poll, the American public’s views on digital assets could play a crucial role in the 2024 United States elections. The online poll, which included 1,201 registered voters, revealed that over two-thirds of respondents agreed that cryptocurrencies are more equitable than the current financial system and cater to people like them. It was also found that more than 90% of voters in swing states such as Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Montana, Pennsylvania, and Arizona intend to cast their votes in the 2024 elections, indicating that digital assets could become a significant issue for candidates in these states. Kristin Smith, CEO of the Blockchain Association, stated that the poll reveals the increasing relevance of digital assets in shaping the electoral landscape of 2024, highlighting that 26% of voters actively consider candidates’ positions on cryptocurrencies when making their decisions.

The survey also indicated that voters’ positive views on digital assets were not significantly influenced by factors such as household income or political party affiliation. In Ohio, 77% of voters demonstrated a more negative attitude towards cryptocurrencies. The Senate race in Ohio is expected to be a tight contest between Democrat Sherrod Brown, who chairs the Senate Banking Committee, and Republican Bernie Moreno. Even if voters choose Moreno over Brown in 2024, Democrats could still maintain their majority in the Senate and select a different candidate for the committee chair.

In addition to voter sentiment, crypto-focused political action committees have amassed over $100 million in funds to support candidates from both major parties in the upcoming election, as reported by Public Citizen. The control of the U.S. Presidency, House of Representatives (currently controlled by Republicans with a narrow majority), and the Senate (currently under Democrats with a slim majority) will be in contention in 2024.

The survey conducted by DCG and The Harris Poll suggests that digital assets could play a significant role in the 2024 United States elections. The data show that a majority of voters believe cryptocurrencies are more equitable and cater to people like them. Swing states such as Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Montana, Pennsylvania, and Arizona have demonstrated high voter engagement, indicating that candidates’ positions on crypto could be a critical factor. Although Ohio voters display a more negative sentiment towards digital assets, the outcome of the Senate race in Ohio may not significantly impact the Senate Banking Committee’s leadership. Political action committees focused on cryptocurrency have raised substantial funds to support candidates from both parties. With control of the Presidency, House of Representatives, and Senate up for grabs, the influence of digital assets on the electoral landscape appears to be on the rise.
