Americans Say This Is Most Important Problem Facing US
Americans named “government” as the most important problem facing the country for the fourth month in a row.
Almost 1 in 5 Americans polled by Gallup last week said “dissatisfaction with government” is the most important problem, topping the economy (11 percent), unemployment (10 percent) and illegal immigration (7 percent).
Only 31 percent said they are satisfied with “the way things are going” in the country.
Government has consistently been named the top problem, but is even more clearly the leading problem this month because fewer Americans named the economy, Gallup noted.
Those who named the economy as the most important problem dropped from 16 percent in February to 11 percent in March. Those who named dissatisfaction with government increased to 18 percent.
Following illegal immigration on the list is healthcare, terrorism, education, moral and family decline, federal debt, poverty, ISIS, national security, foreign policy and race relations.
Gallup surveyed a random sample of 1,025 adults across the country.
