Illegal Immigration a Low Priority for Republican Voters

New York Times
By David Jones
February 9, 2016

The issue of illegal immigration has been front and center throughout the Republican presidential campaign and the focus of heated exchanges in the debates. But only one in seven Republican primary voters in New Hampshire rated it the issue they cared most about this election cycle.

Further, asked whether most immigrants working in the United States illegally should be deported or offered a chance at legal status, a majority backed legal status.

Nearly twice as many Republicans said that the economy was the most important issue facing the country. Three-quarters said they felt very worried about the direction of the economy. Less than one in 10 said they were not worried.

One quarter of Republican voters picked terrorism as their top issue, and roughly six in 10 said they were very worried about another major terrorist attack on the United States.

Another quarter of Republican voters selected government spending as the main issue facing the country.
