A plurality of U.S. voters point to immigration as the most important issue facing the country, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill on Tuesday.
Thirty-eight percent of respondents said that they see immigration as their top issue more than the 36 percent who said health care is the most important matter in the country.
The findings come as a deadlock between President Trump and congressional Democrats over funding for a border wall drags a partial government shutdown into its fifth week.
The findings also suggests that the topic of immigration could play an outsize role in the 2020 election cycle, when Trump will seek a second term in the White House.
Immigration is surging as the top issue in the country, displacing healthcare, said Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS/Harris poll.
Bad news for the Rats
I thought it was Global Warming. Or Climate Change. Or whatever liberals call it these days.
The border has been an issue since the mid 1980’s, and certainly a huge issue since 9/11/01.
Obviously what the commoners think matters little to the ‘public servants’ those commoners put in office.
This kind of poll only tells the politicians what to focus on when it comes time to ask for money or campaign.
I watched this Charles Bronson movie a bit ago. It was all about the “wets” that kept coming across the border. It was actually pretty good. From 1980.
Yes, maybe the Dems will see this poll...
