WASHINGTON — A majority of Americans say they’re frustrated, angry – or both – with the presidential election. That’s according to a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research that finds most Americans want more focus on issues.

Eighty-six percent of Americans are paying at least some attention to the race.

The issues Americans care most about? Health care ranks first, with 81 percent listing that as very or extremely important. Others include Social Security, education, terrorism and homeland security. Crime and economic growth rank higher than immigration.
