When Yahoo News presented Americans with a number of phrases describing the 2024 presidential election, the one that received the most agreement from poll respondents was one focused on the importance of defending democracy.

Six in 10 respondents in the poll conducted by YouGov offered at least some agreement with the statement, which read: “Whether democracy is still America’s sacred cause is the most urgent question of our time. It’s what the 2024 election should be all about.” That included three-quarters of Democrats and 6 in 10 Republicans. The only other statement with which a majority of respondents agreed was one about how “Donald Trump’s campaign is about him, not America.” But Republicans weren’t on board with that one.
