Washington, DC

A sizable majority of voters says illegal immigration is a critical issue for them in the upcoming congressional elections, but they also suspect most candidates raise the topic for political purposes only, not to deal with it.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 72% of Likely U.S. Voters consider the issue of illegal immigration important to their vote in the midterm congressional elections this fall, with 42% who say it is Very Important. For 27%, it’s not an important issue, but that includes only nine percent (9%) who say it’s Not At All Important.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on August 26-27, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
