Less than six months remain until the general election in 2024, and both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump will be watching for crucial endorsements that might tip the scales in November. Although analysts and voters have questioned the impact of these endorsements, prominent people within a party or across the nation can serve as crucial proxies for the candidates. Even though the majority of prominent Democrats and Republicans have already endorsed the presumed nominees of their parties, many more significant endorsements might occur in the following months. Let us take a look at 5 key endorsements to monitor ahead of the general elections in November.

1. Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift, who Forbes named one of the 'most powerful women' in the world, is perhaps one of the most anticipated possible endorsements of the 2024 campaign. In recent years, Taylor Swift has become a global sensation, selling out concerts all over the world including in the United States. Additionally, Swift has dabbled in political activism on occasion. Just before the 2020 election, Swift backed Biden for president, stating that she thought he and now-Vice President Kamala Harris would begin a 'healing process' for the nation. Before Election Day 2020, she also voiced her opposition to Trump, accusing him of 'ineffective leadership' and 'taking advantage of it to subvert and destroy our right to vote' in addition to exacerbating the Covid-19 epidemic. According to reports, Biden's team has been actively pursuing Swift's endorsement; if she does back him, it may provide him the much-needed bump in support among younger people.

Beyonce is another celebrity who has maybe even more sway than Swift. With her most recent album, 'Cowboy Carter', she ventured into country music, earning even more praise — and some criticism — for already having the most Grammy awards of any musician. Swift is not as involved in politics as Beyonce is. She and her spouse, Jay-Z, helped in raising millions of dollars for Barack Obama's 2012 reelection campaign and both gave performances at a Hillary Clinton-supporting event in 2016.

3. Chris Christie

Chris Christie, who was once a close buddy of Trump, entered the 2024 contest with no intention of endorsing him should he win the nomination. In February, he said that "under any circumstances" he would not support Trump in the election. Though he hasn't said he's ready to commit, he has indicated he is open to backing Biden. Christie stated in April that Biden need to ask him for his support. In response, a spokesman for the Biden campaign cited the campaign's advertisement attempting to win over non-Trump GOP voters.

4. Mitt Romney

One of the congressional Republicans most prepared to criticize Trump in either house is Sen Mitt Romney. He has said he would not be supporting Trump this year. He did not vote for Trump in 2020. In an interview with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle last month, he stated that his main concern is Trump's character and that he will not vote for him. He hasn't indicated that he would support Biden thus far. He has stated that the US can 'survive bad policy', but not someone with a poor character leading the nation, but he hasn't completely ruled it out either.

5. Teamsters

One of the biggest labor organizations in the country, the Teamsters, may significantly impact important working-class voters in several of the crucial battleground states, such as Pennsylvania and Michigan, with their endorsement. Many 2024 presidential contenders, including Biden, Trump, and independents Robert F Kennedy Jr and Cornel West, have met with Teamsters leaders. Sean O'Brien, the union president, stated following their meeting with Biden in March that the organization will probably hold off from endorsing until closer to the election.
