July 17, 2019: Eighteen percent (18%) of voters consider healthcare to be the most important voting issue today. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that it is followed closely by immigration (16%), the economy (15%), and national security (9%).[1]

In terms of these top priorities, however, there are substantial partisan differences:

Among Republicans, the economy and immigration are both seen as most important by 24% of voters. National security ranks third among the GOP at 14% while healthcare is rated most important by 9%.

As for Democrats, healthcare is seen as most important by 28%, and nothing else comes close. Immigration and the economy are each rated most important by 10%. Nine percent (9%) of Democratic voters name environmental issues as number one.

Independent voters have a more mixed assessment. Healthcare (15%), immigration (15%), and the economy (13%) are all pretty close on the priority list (see crosstab results).
