ONLY 2% SUPPORT ‘GUN CONTROL’ AS TOP ISSUE IN U.S., DESPITE OBAMA’S PUSH
While President Obama attempts to enact gun control via executive action, a new Gallup poll shows that only 2% of Americans believe “guns/gun control” is among the country’s top problems.
Gallup asked about 1,000 Americans in all 50 states what they thought the nation’s top problems were in 2015, and out of 23 problems mentioned by Americans, “guns/gun control” ranked near the bottom at 19th.
In comparison, 16% of Americans said the government was the nation’s biggest issue, 13% said the economy, 8% said unemployment and 8% said immigration.
“Rounding out the top 10 were a constellation of problems each averaging 5%, including ethical/moral decline, race relations/racism, terrorism, the federal budget deficit or debt and education,” Gallup reported.
