Gun Control Ranked 19th in Poll of America’s Important Problems

If you pay any attention to Barack Obama, you would believe that the number one problem facing America was gun violence and the need for more gun control laws. Enacting stricter anti-Second Amendment executive orders appear to be more important to Obama than fixing a broken federal government system, economy, jobs and even terrorism.

However, that’s not what the American people believe to be the most important problem that needs to be addressed.

Gallup looked at what Americans mentioned as being the most important problems throughout 2015. For the second year in a row, the top problems mentioned by Americans was Government/Congress/Politicians with a 16% overall rating.

The economy in general was the second most important problem facing Americas with 13%. That was followed by unemployment/jobs and immigration at 8%. Immigration spiked in December after the Paris terrorist attack. Healthcare was next with 6%, followed by ethics/moral decline, race relations/racism, terrorism, federal budget deficit/federal debt and education with 5%. Garnering next with 3% was poverty/hunger/homelessness, national security, gap between rich and poor, crime/violence, foreign aid/focus overseas and the situation in Iraq/ISIS. Last on the list of the nation’s most important problems, garnering only 2% interest of the American people was judicial system/courts/laws, environment/pollution, guns/gun control, lack of respect for each other, lack of money, international issues or problems and wars/war (non-specific)/fear of war.
