Most voters think President Trump‘s first State of the Union address should focus on improving the health-care system, according to a new Morning Consult–Politico poll.

According to the poll, 82 percent of voters say it’s important for Trump to address improving the health-care system in the speech, followed closely by the 81 percent who said it’s important for him to talk about the economy and creating jobs.

Providing direction and leadership and reducing poverty in the U.S. came in third, while fighting terrorism followed.The poll surveyed 1,994 registered voters from Jan. 18 to 20 and has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.

It’s unlikely Trump will put a large focus on health care during his speech Tuesday evening.

Congress failed to repeal and replace ObamaCare multiple times last year, though lawmakers did repeal the law’s unpopular individual mandate that most people have insurance or pay a fine.

Trump will likely pressure Congress on immigration as it works to find a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Trump is also going to focus on laying out an trillion-dollar infrastructure plan and the recently passed tax-reform bill.
