Gallup Poll: Immigration Top Problem in US

By    |   Tuesday, 27 February 2024 11:42 AM EST

Immigration jumped to the top of the most important problem list for Americans, the first time it has been in the spot since 2019, according to a Gallup Poll released Tuesday.

Five years ago, when immigration occupied the top spot, there was a surge of attempted crossings at the southern border. It also ranked as the top problem in July and November 2018 and in July 2014.

Poll results:

  • 28% of Americans say immigration is the most important problem, up 8 points from last month. 
  • 20% say government, down 1 point from last month.
  • 12% say economy, the same as last month.
  • 11% say inflation, down from 13% from last month.
  • 6% say poverty, hunger, homelessness, up from 5% last month.
  • No other issue exceeded 5%.

The poll, conducted Feb. 1-20, surveyed 1,016 adults. The margin of error is 4 percentage points.
