All four leading Democratic candidates have spelled out, in more or less detail, their vision for a healthcare reform/plan. But how important is the issue to Democratic voters, i.e. are there any polls on how much importance Democratic voters attach to healthcare and/or its reform?

To make the question perhaps more interesting: are there any demographics or socioeconomic factors that alter this perception?

There's this pretty solid looking poll from June that shows Health care is the most important topic democrats (and democrat-leaning independents) want to talk about, or at least hear about in the debates.

Unfortunately it doesn't have a demographic or geographic breakdown, which would have been nice, but it should at least give you some insight into the core of your question.

    More specifically, they apparently consider it the most important topic in federal debates. That's not the same as most important topic overall: perhaps on other topics they consider important all Democratic candidates agree and there is nothing to debate, or perhaps other topics they consider important aren't decided federally.

  • @gerrit That is an excellent point, thank you. Made a small edit to reflect that distinction.
