A new Gallup poll finds that a majority of respondents say that government is the biggest problem we all face.
Thanks Captain Obvious.
This is Gallup, too, not Fox News or some conservative polling firm. Gallup is a typically left-leaning outfit.
Most Americans are dissatisfied with the government for the seventh year in the past decade, according to a Gallup Poll released Tuesday.
According to Gallup, 19% of Americans name government as the “most important problem” facing the nation in a list of 11, ahead of inflation and cost of living [16%], the economy in general [12%], and immigration at 6%.
Other issues such as unifying the country, abortion, crime, and gasoline prices placed lower on the list, with most ranking at 3%.
The poll showed the most discontent among Republicans, with 25% saying government is the top problem, followed by inflation at 22%, and the economy in general at 17%.
Democrats also listed the government as their top problem issue with 18%, followed by inflation at 10%, and the economy at 8%.
Independents split evenly between the government and inflation, ranking them at 16% each, followed by the economy in third place at 12%, according to the poll.
Newsmax has much more at its post, of course.
But this is just more evidence that our out-of-control scheme of government is doing more harm than good and has become an impediment to this country and its people.
Government is killing us. It needs to be fixed. The corruption needs to end.Commentary
