Gallup Poll: Government, Immigration Top US Woes

The government and immigration are the most important problems facing the United States, with healthcare ranking at a more distant third place, according to Americans cited in a new Gallup Poll released Wednesday.

The poll of a random sample of 1,012 adults interviewed by telephone from April 1-9 found 23% named government as the top problem and 21% saw immigration as the main issue.

Among other issues:

  • Healthcare, 7%;
  • Race relations or racism, 6%
  • Economy, poverty, and country unity, 5%;
  • Environment/climate change, 3%;
  • Unemployment/wealth gap, 2%.

It also revealed that immigration was named by several more Republicans than Democrats:

  • 41% of Republicans put immigration at the top, compared to 18% of independents and 5% of Democrats;
  • 32% of Democrats saw the government as the main issue, compared to 19% of Republicans.

The poll carried a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.

The mention of immigration is almost at its high point. Last July, as separation of migrant families was a large concern, 22% said immigration was their main worry. However, from 2001 through 2017, immigration was only mentioned by about 5% or respondents.

The mentions of government dropped from a 35% high mark in February, shortly after the longest government shutdown on record occurred. However, the government has been mentioned by an average of 22% of those polled since President Donald Trump took office.
