Updated: Thursday, July 17 2014, 05:40 PM CDT
With midterm elections just a few months away, political candidates will be focusing on a number of issues to sway voters and they may be wise to concentrate on immigration.
               
The latest Gallup poll finds that immigration is viewed as the most important problem facing the country today.

With thousands of undocumented immigrant minors crossing the nation's southern border in recent months, the percentage of Americans citing immigration as the top problem has risen to 17% this month.
               
That's up from 5% in June, and the highest seen since 2006.
In a statistical tie is "dissatisfaction with government," at 16%.
               
The economy and unemployment come next...  at 15% and 14%, respectively.
Healthcare declined by half as a perceived top problem since the open-enrollment period to buy health insurance through health exchanges ended in April.
               
Healthcare dropped from 16% in January  to 8% today.
