Impact of demographic changes[edit]

The election has been the early topic of attention by analysts and commentators as it will be the first U.S. presidential election to occur after the reallocation of electors in the United States Electoral College occurring as a result of the 2020 United States Census.[38][39] This realignment of electoral college votes will remain consistent through the 2028 election before being reapportioned again for the 2032 election.[40]

In a study of the implications of redistribution of electors in 2024 published in Perspectives on Politics, University of Georgia political scientist Edward Burmila concluded that:[41]

Democratic presidential candidates will find it increasingly difficult to win elections without having some success in the South and Southwest as Barack Obama did in 2008 but many previous candidates failed to do. While illegal immigration will also benefit some solid Democratic states such as California, on balance Republican presidential candidates are poised to benefit from the status of Sun Belt states as magnets for both foreign immigration and domestic migration from a retirement cohort of unprecedented size.

In a separate analysis for Real Clear Politics, Sean Trende predicted a less significant movement of three electoral votes from traditionally Democratic Party states to those that traditionally support Republican candidates during the redistribution of electors that will occur for the 2024 election.[42]

Though geography has been said to favor a Republican candidate in the 2024 election, some have noted that demographic trends may help a Democratic candidate if current group party affinities continue to hold in 2024. Ethnic minorities are predicted to constitute 40-percent of eligible voters age 30 to 44, a constituency described as "ripe for Democratic retention." As a possible rejoinder, however, the unusually large baby boomer generation will enter the 65+ age range in 2024. According to the Brookings Institution, these older voters "will be easier for the Republican Party to retain if current generational voting affinities continue."[43]

A report by the American Enterprise Institute also predicts that the aging white population could result in an increase in Republican support, leading to a Republican lead in the 2020 and 2024 elections, but that this will be followed by Democratic advantages in 2028 and 2032. However, the report also suggests that increased minority turnout could shift solidly Republican states toward the "swing" category, overcoming the shift of the aging population and resulting in a Democratic win in 2024.[44]

In popular culture[edit]

  • In an episode of the NBC television sitcom "Parks and Recreation", character Leslie Knope reveals she plans to stand in the 2024 U.S. presidential election.[45]
  • In the 2015 series finale of the FOX musical comedy series "Glee", character Sue Sylvester announces she plans to stand in the 2024 U.S. presidential election.[46]
  • A 2008 feminist advocacy documentary by Amy Sewell, "What's Your Point Honey?", follows the lives of seven women selected as part of a 16-year plan to "groom" potential candidates for the 2024 U.S. presidential election.[47]
