It’s a safe bet that in any poll taken attempting to determine what is really concerning the American people, economic issues will top the list. A recent Gallup poll verifies that to be the case. “Jobs and unemployment,” according to the poll, has regained its position as the number one problem facing Americans. “Government and politicians” was knocked from the top spot, but that issue runs a close second with the people. The poll shows that nearly one in four Americans — 23 percent — say the most important problem facing the country is jobs and unemployment. The economy ranks number two, with 20 percent saying it’s the biggest problem.
Since the government shutdown in October, government and politicians had topped the list, according to Gallup. Since the shutdown, politicians were held in very low esteem. The jump in the poll was most pronounced among Republicans, from 11 percent naming jobs and unemployment in January to 24 percent in February. The survey of 1,023 adults was conducted in early February and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. The message to the two political parties – when you consider the numbers in the top two categories – is that while the American people have a low regard for both government and the politicians, they definitely want an improved economy.
