Gallup: Government Is Nation’s Biggest Problem

The United States is a country plagued with problems, but according to the latest Gallup poll, the U.S. government is the root of the problem.

In fact, 16 percent say that some aspect of the federal government, including President Barack Obama, Congress, and partisanship, is the biggest problem in the United States.

Coming in second was the economy with 13 percent of the vote with third place being a tie between immigration and unemployment at 8 percent.

The Hill reports:

Gallup reported Monday that 2015 was the first year since 2007 that immigration was one of the top four most cited problems among Americans. It also marks first time since 2001 that no single issue emerged with 20 percent or higher in an average of the firm’s monthly surveys.

Gallup’s analysis of 2015 stems from a total sample of approximately 12,000 adults nationwide via cell and landline phone interviews. It has a 1 percent margin of error.
