Economic Concerns Surpass Government Distrust

economic concernsThe latest Gallup survey to examine the top concerns of Americans shows a shift in the standings, with economic concerns topping the list. According to Gallup:

Americans have a new No. 1 problem. Nearly one in four Americans mention jobs and unemployment as the most important problem facing the country, up from 16% in January. The government and politicians had topped the list since the government shutdown in October.

Not surprisingly, responses differ significantly between the two major political parties, particularly on the federal debt and deficit, with 11% of Republicans citing this as a top concern and only 4% of Democrats doing so.
