On the issue they consider the most important, 36% of voters trust Democrats more than Republicans while 35% place more trust in Republicans. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 15% do not trust either party, 6% trust both, and 8% are not sure.
Among those who consider health care the most important issue, Democrats have a 56% to 14% advantage. On the issue of immigration, voters overall are fairly evenly divided in terms of which party they trust. However, among those who consider it the most important issue, 60% trust Republicans more while 23% trust the Democrats.
Republicans also have a substantial advantage among those who see the economy (49% to 23%) and national security as most important (59% to 13%).
Eighteen percent (18%) of voters consider Health Care to be the most important issue; 16% say it’s immigration; 15% cite the economy; and 9% national security. The number of survey respondents naming a variety of other topics to be the most important issue was too small to report separate results.
More than seven-out-of-ten voters consider both Health Care, the Economy, and National Security to be Very Important Issues.
Overall, in terms of trust on their most important issue, Republicans have a slight edge among Suburban and Rural voters. Democrats have a double-digit advantage among Rural voters. (see crosstab results).
