NU Online News Service, Dec. 2, 2003, 2:43 p.m. EST – U.S. voters say they will think hard about health care and health insurance when they go to the polls for the November 2004 presidential elections, according to a survey by researchers at The Gallup Organization, Princeton, N.J.[@@]

Gallup researchers asked registered voters in mid-November, “What will be the most important issues that you will take into account when deciding whom to vote for?” “The economy” ranked first, with a 29% share of the responses.

“War issues in Iraq” came to the lips of 22% of the registered voters. After that, “healthcare/health insurance” tied for third, with a 7% share, with “international/foreign affairs” and “employment issues.”

The only other issues that had a share of 3% or more were “education,” “taxes,” “honesty/integrity/credibility of the candidate,” “senior care/Medicare/prescription drugs” and “terrorism.”
