A new POLITICO-Harvard poll of U.S. adults finds that the deficit, drug prices, infrastructure and hate crimes are among the public’s top priorities for the new Congress entering office this January.

While these issue areas had broad bipartisan support, other priorities were polarized along party lines. Democratic respondents want Congress to focus on climate change, DACA, gun laws and investigations of President Donald  Trump. Republicans, conversely, were more likely to prioritize Trump’s  NAFTA replacement, unauthorized immigration and defense spending.
