The United States will hold its 60th presidential election on November 5, 2024. The winner of the 2024 presidential election will be sworn into office on January 20, 2025.
“As of July 24, 2023, former President and Author Donald Trump (R) leads in both RealClearPolitics’ (RCP) Republican presidential primary polling average and PredictIt’s Republican presidential primary market,” said Ballotpedia.
Trump’s polling average stands at 52%, followed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) at 18%. No other candidate has more than a 10% polling average. In PredictIt’s Republican primary market, Trump’s share price is $0.57, DeSantis’ share price is $0.20, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy’s share price is at $0.13. No other candidate has a share price at or above $0.10.
A candidate’s polling average reflects an estimate of the vote share a candidate would receive if the election were held today, while a PredictIt share price roughly corresponds to the market’s estimate of the probability of a candidate winning the election.
President Joe Biden (D) leads both RCP’s Democratic primary polling average and PredictIt’s Democratic primary market. Biden has a 35% polling average, with no other candidates polling at or above 10%, and a $0.67 PredictIt share price. Two other candidates have a share price at or above $0.10. California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) stands at $0.22, and environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. stands at $0.10.
“Newsom is the only candidate of those mentioned above to have not announced a 2024 presidential campaign,” said Ballotpedia.
The Democratic Party will select its presidential nominee at the 2024 Democratic National Convention, which will take place from August 19-22, 2024, in Chicago Illinois.
“Prior to the national convention, individual state caucuses and primaries are held to allocate convention delegates. These delegates, along with superdelegates who come from the party leadership, vote at the convention to select the nominee,” said Ballotpedia.
The 2024 Republican National Convention will take place in Milwaukee, /Wisconsin, from July 15-18, 2024.
The national nominating convention is the formal ceremony during which the party officially selects its nominee and adopts a party platform. The delegates are individuals chosen to represent their state or territory at the convention.
