Fewer people cite healthcare as country's most important problem following midterms, Gallup finds
December 21, 2018 / Jeff Lagasse
Healthcare, along with immigration, were top concerns among voters heading into November's midterm elections. Many cited those issues as among the nation's top problems. Now, though, concern over healthcare is down, according to a new poll from Gallup. Before the midterms, 11 percent of Americans cited healthcare as the nation's biggest problem, trailing only immigration and government itself. Only five percent of Americans now say it's the top problem, a six percentage-point decrease. Immigration is down as well, from 21 to 16 percent, leaving government and its woes as the number one problem Americans feel is most pressing.
