Read the full Gallup analysis

On Monday, Gallup reported that Hillary Clinton was significantly ahead in the two largest Super Tuesday states, New York and California. Today, Gallup’s analysts took a closer look at the findings of that Jan. 23-26 survey to assess Clinton’s strengths and weaknesses on the issues.

The toplines:

– **Health Care:** In both states, Clinton is far out front of Obama – by large double-digit margins – among voters who said health care was an important issue to them.
– **Economy:** Clinton outruns Obama by 57 percent to 29 percent in New York among voters who singled out the economy, but this margin is probably bolstered by her home-state advantage. In California, she leads Obama by only 45 percent to 40 percent.
– **Iraq:** This issue provides the closest margins between the two. In New York, voters concerned about Iraq favor Clinton 47 percent to 38 percent, but in California, her margin is only 41 percent to 39 percent over Obama, well within the 4 point margin of error.
