The percentage of Americans who say they are satisfied with the direction of the U.S. climbed to its highest point in eight months, according to a Gallup poll released Thursday.

According to Gallup's latest satisfaction reading, based on a nationwide random sample poll of 1,009 adults aged 18 and older conducted from May 1-12, 63% of Americans are dissatisfied, but 36% said they are satisfied, marking a jump of 5 percentage points from last month and reaching the highest point since last fall.

The government, at 23%, and immigration, at 19%, top the issues for poll respondents:

  • The government/Poor leadership, 23%;
  • Immigration, 19%;
  • Healthcare 7%;
  • Race relations/Racism, 6%;
  • Economy in general, 4%;
  • Environment/Pollution/Climate change, 4%
  • Unifying the country, 4%
  • Education, 4%
  • Lack of respect for each other, 3%;
  • Ethics/Moral/Religious/Family decline,3%;
  • Poverty/Hunger/Homelessness, 3%;
  • Unemployment/Jobs, 3;
  • Federal budget deficit/Federal debt, 2%;
  • Gap between rich and poor, 2%;
  • Crime/Violence, 2%;
  • Judicial system/Courts/Laws, 2%;
  • Drugs, 2%.

The satisfaction reading has surpassed 35% since last October or hit 40% since 2005, and according to Gallup, the numbers may be up because the public sees the job market as improving.

Further, Republicans, at 62%, said they are satisfied with the direction of the country, while just 13% of Democrats said they're satisfied.
