No surprise: Health care is the top issue for voters heading into next month’s elections, though Republicans say immigration and the economy are more important to them, according to the latest Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll. (When voters who say health care is “very important” to them were asked what health care issue they mean, 24 percent cited health care or prescription drug costs, while 19 percent mentioned increasing access to health care.)
Something of a surprise: Relatively few voters say they are hearing “a lot” from candidates about health care issues.
The poll of 1,201 adults was conducted September 19 to October 2. It has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
