Much less&#xA0than 3 weeks until Election Day, voters are thinking most about health care, the economy, and reining in President Trump — and Democratic candidates are benefitting.

At the moment, 49 percent of most likely voters back the Democratic candidate in their Home district and 42 % the Republican, according to a new Fox News national survey.&#xA0 That 7-point lead is unchanged from final month, and just outdoors the poll&#x2019s margin of error.&#xA0 Nine percent will vote for someone else or are undecided.

Here’s how we get there:

— Prime problem: Health care.&#xA0 While majorities of likely voters say the economy (54 %) and President Trump (51 percent) will be &quotextremely&quot essential to their Home vote, more voters really feel that way about health care (58 percent) — and that group prefers the Democratic candidate by a 24-point margin.&#xA0 Meanwhile, a majority disapproves of how Trump is handling overall health care.

— Guardrails for Trump.&#xA0 By a 53-41 percent margin, most likely voters say having the next Congress be a verify on the president is more critical than helping Trump enact his policies.&#xA0 In counties where the 2016 vote was close (Hillary Clinton and Trump inside 10 points), a majority of 56 percent want a verify on Trump, and Democrats lead the generic ballot in these counties by 12 points.

— Trump job performance.&#xA0 The president&#x2019s job rating is underwater by 4 points (47-51 percent).&#xA0 Trump gets net damaging ratings on well being care (-16 points), immigration (-14 points), Supreme Court nominees (-8), and border security and trade (both -7).&#xA0 At a negative 22, race relations is his worst concern.&#xA0 He receives good marks for handling hurricanes (+two) and the economy (+6).

— The economy and family finances.&#xA0 Fewer voters are confident in their personal economic future compared to 2015.&#xA0 At that time, 73 % felt specific.&#xA0 Right now, that&#x2019s 68 percent. &#xA0The ratings are very partisan, as twice as numerous Republicans (41 percent) as Democrats (19 %) really feel &#x201Cvery&#x201D confident in their financial future.&#xA0 Likewise, 73 % of Republicans rate the economy positively, whilst 33 % of Democrats agree.&#xA0 Overall, views are mixed:&#xA0 49 % really feel the economy is in exceptional or great shape vs. 48 percent saying only fair or poor.

— Reputation contest.&#xA0 Much more voters have a favorable view than an unfavorable view of the Democratic Celebration by three points, whilst the Republican Party rating is a net damaging by 7 and President Trump is below water by 9.&#xA0 The Me Too Movement rating is +16.

— Ladies.&#xA0 There&#x2019s a wide gender gap, as females likely voters assistance the Democratic candidate by 18 points, even though men back the Republican by six.&#xA0 Given that 2016, white females have shifted from backing Trump by 9 points to backing the Democrat by two points today.&#xA0 Democrats are up by 56 points amongst non-white ladies, by 35 points with females below age 45, and by 19 points amongst suburban women.

— GOP positions out of favor.&#xA0 The only issue that draws clear assistance for the GOP candidate is border safety, as those naming it as really critical to their vote back the Republican by 23 points.&#xA0 Seventy percent of most likely voters favor a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants at the moment functioning in the U.S.&#xA0 More like Obamacare (54 % favorable) than the tax reduce law (45 % favorable) — plus wellness care (58 %) is extremely important to a lot more voters than taxes (44 %) when it comes to their congressional vote.

— Kavanaugh.&#xA0 Most likely voters split over Brett Kavanaugh&#x2019s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court:&#xA0 47 approve vs. 48 disapprove.&#xA0 And the 46 percent saying Supreme Court nominations are really crucial to their vote are far more probably to favor the Democrat by 7 points.

— Enthusiasm.&#xA0 Voters who backed Clinton two years ago are a lot more probably than Trump 2016 voters to say this election outcome is &#x201Cextremely&#x201D important (by 14 points), far more likely to be &#x201Cextremely&#x201D interested (by 11 points), and also more most likely than Trump voters to be motivated by enthusiasm for their candidate rather than by worry the other candidate may well win (by 7 points).

— Motivation.&#xA0 When asked to name what a single concern will motivate them to vote this year (with out the aid of a list), the prime three talked about by likely voters are well being care (13 percent), reining in Trump (10), and the economy (9).&#xA0 Subsequent, it is Democrats obtaining handle of Congress (8 %), immigration reform (7), and border safety (five).

&quotIt’s clear that every single day the news is dominated by an additional political outrage or controversy is a missed chance for Democrats,&quot says Anderson.&#xA0 &quotVoters are broadly in agreement with Democrats on overall health care and the much more focus on the issue the much better for them.&quot

— Two-thirds feel political correctness in this country has gone also far, like 82 percent of Republicans, 62 % of independents, and 48 % of Democrats.
