Immigration is now...

...the most important issue facing America, according to a new poll from Gallup. (Gee; I wonder why. Could it be that all those children from Central America are crowding out all other news lately?) From the Los Angeles Times:

One of six Americans say that immigration issues now rank as the nation's most pressing problem, a tripling in just one month, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday.

That should come as no surprise. But what I found more interesting was this:

Immigration ranked No. 1, according to the Gallup poll, while dissatisfaction with government and its leaders ranked No. 2 at 16%. The economy, unemployment and healthcare rounded out the top five at 15%, 14% and 8% respectively.

Obamacare Healthcare is only No. 5? And with only 8%? That's a big change from January, when it was tied for third place with 16%. What does that mean? Obamacare was supposed to be the Republicans' big issue* for November. That was supposed to be their ticket to a Senate majority. What happened? Did people suddenly decide it's not that big of a deal? Is Obamacare -- gulp -- working?

You watch: this current immigration crisis will fade by November, if not sooner, and the Democrats will retain the Senate.

*Then it was Benghazi. Remember that?
