4 in 5 Registered Voters Say It’s Time to Prioritize Domestic Issues

NEW YORK, N.Y. – The second monthly Harvard-Harris Poll, released in conjunction with The Hill this week, explores registered voters’ attitudes toward the newly proposed Republican healthcare legislation, the future of the Democratic party, investigations into Russia’s alleged role in the U.S. presidential election, privacy and cybersecurity in the modern age of terrorism, and America’s role in foreign policy, including perceptions of our friends and foes around the world.
