From NBC/WSJ poll: Top 3 items voters want Congress to tackle: cut student loan costs; invest in infrastructure; raise min wage. Will they?Overlooked? In NBC/WSJ poll, 74% support immigration plan like one passed by Senate 500 days ago. But Boehner won't allow vote in House.

Immigration bill won a huge bipartisan majority in the Senate. POTUS should agree to shelve exec order for up or down vote in House.Striking how different midterm electorate is from presidential years. D efforts to change that Tuesday fell short. Big dropoff among young.But there is a bright spot: My old WH right hand man, @EricLesser is on his way to the Massachusetts Senate!Said on @NBCNews earlier that this was not a wave. But the returns since then say otherwise.
