Crypto Emerges as Key Issue in Battleground States Ahead of U.S. Elections

In a surprising turn of events, a recent poll conducted by blockchain venture firm Digital Currency Group has revealed that more than 20% of voters in key battleground states are considering crypto as a crucial issue in the upcoming U.S. elections. The poll, which surveyed 1,201 registered voters from Michigan, Ohio, Montana, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Arizona, found that half of the respondents are paying close attention to the candidates’ stances on crypto.

According to the poll, swing state voters view crypto as an important issue, with many expressing a desire for policymakers to establish reasonable regulations that protect consumers while fostering innovation. Julie Stitzel, senior vice president of policy at DCG, emphasized the significance of a pro-crypto position for candidates, stating that it is a net positive for both policymakers and candidates.

The survey also uncovered that approximately 20% to 25% of voters, including a third of “crypto-positive” voters, want elected officials to focus on regulating crypto and implementing investor protections. Interestingly, the poll found that 14% of voters currently own crypto, while 12% have previously owned crypto, with the highest rate of crypto ownership reported in Montana.

One state that stands out in the survey is Ohio, where voters have shown a more negative attitude towards crypto. The upcoming Senate race in Ohio is shaping up to be influential, with Democratic Chair Sherrod Brown facing reelection against Republican Bernie Moreno, a crypto-friendly candidate who emerged victorious in the primary.

In response to the growing interest in crypto among voters, crypto exchange Coinbase has launched a grassroots “Stand with Crypto” campaign in Ohio, hosting town halls to engage with the community. With crypto becoming a prominent issue on the campaign trail, it is clear that candidates’ positions on digital assets could play a significant role in the upcoming elections.
