Heading into the midterm elections, American voters are more likely to say they're focused about health care than any other issue.

Asked to select their top two issues from a list in a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, 30 percent of registered voters picked health care. An unusual trio of issues is tied for second place, with each named by about a quarter of voters as a top priority ― the economy, which perpetually ranks as a top campaign topic, but also gun policies, which rarely garner that level of attention, and immigration, a mainstay of Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

This far from the election, of course, there's still plenty of time for campaign narratives to develop and change. Voters' midterm preferences are often driven more by partisanship than by policy, and this time around, Trump's presence is likely to cast a heavy shadow over the results. But if health care plays a prominent role in this year's election, as multiple polls have suggested it may, it's another way the 2018 playing field could advantage Democrats.

 
 

WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING?

President Donald Trump is lauding tax cuts that most Americans still don't see as a benefit. Recent polls show that majorities say they are not seeing higher paychecks from the new law.

The U.S. slapped Putin's inner circle with aggressive new sanctions. 24 people and 14 groups were targeted.

On Friday, Trump resisted mounting pressure to oust EPA administrator Scott Pruitt. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has been urging the president to fire him.
