Unsurprisingly, Obama and Romney voters split significantly on how they prioritized major issues. The president's backers were more likely to identify healthcare as a priority by a 29 percent margin, and favor dealing with environmental concerns, increasing taxes on wealthy Americans or improving schools by at least 20-point gaps.
Romney supporters, meanwhile, are likely to prioritize the budget deficit, moral standards and dealing with international threats at a higher clip.
The only priority where Democrats and Republicans were in perfect unity: the importance of creating good jobs.
"The candidate who Americans think has the better plans on each of these issues will have an advantage," said Gallup's Jeffrey Jones in a statement. "As of now, Americans believe Romney is better able to handle jobs and the deficit than Obama is. Still, the two candidates remain locked in a tight race, with voters' presidential preferences evenly divided."
The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
