Listen to The Point Being, a podcast from the Ipsos Polling Team, where Chris Jackson and Phil Elwood discuss this week’s numbers.

As Graham-Cassidy healthcare plan dominated the news cycle, healthcare (19%) again topped the list of most important problems facing America. Distantly following healthcare, around one in ten Americans believe the economy (11%) and terrorism (12%) are the most important problems.

After spending much of the last week in conflict with the NFL, NBA and North Korea, President Trump’s approval is now at 38%. He faced a notable drop in support from Republicans, down to 76% from 83% last week.

For the third time, Jeff Sessions (14%) tops the Ipsos ‘Wh-Exit’ Poll, where Americans predict the next staff member to resign or be terminated from the White House or Executive Branch. He’s distantly followed by John Kelly (8%), Sarah Sanders (7%), and Rex Tillerson (7%).

These are findings from an Ipsos poll conducted for Thomson Reuters September 22-26, 2017. For the survey, a sample of 3,429 Americans, ages 18+ were interviewed online.
