Voters Say Illegal Immigration, Health Care Are Congress’ Priorities

Voters say illegal immigration and health care are the priorities for the new Congress but aren’t very hopeful that President Trump and Democrats in Congress will work together. Democrats want to get on with impeachment, too.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 29% of all Likely U.S. Voters believe illegal immigration is the issue the new Congress should deal with first, closely followed by 24% who want to emphasize health care. Seventeen percent (17%) think the focus should be on President Trump’s impeachment. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
