For the second week in a row, immigration (17%) is seen as the most important issue facing America today, followed closely by healthcare (15%). Democrats and Republicans deviate on what they perceive to be the most important issues: healthcare (20%) is seen as the most important issue for Democrats while immigration (29%) tops the list for Republicans.

In the Reuters Ipsos congressional generic ballot question, Democrats maintain their lead among all adult Americans (38%) compared to 30% who would vote for a Republican candidate. Democrats also lead among registered voters (44%), and Independents (24%) compared to the Republican vote share (34% and 12%, respectively). Democrats (86%) and Republicans (81%) remain loyal to their respective parties when faced with the generic ballot question. Just two in five Americans (40%) are satisfied with the job their congressional representative is doing overall. Registered voters (46%) are slightly more likely to approve of their representative’s job performance.
