Unemployment has surpassed government and politicians as the most important problem facing Americans, according to a new poll.
The Gallup survey shows that nearly one in four Americans 23 percent say that jobs are the biggest problem, followed by "dissatisfaction" with government, the economy, and healthcare.
The concerns over unemployment have increased by a third from Gallups last poll in January, when 16 percent of Americans said jobs was their leading issue.

The Federal Reserve and the public in general should ignore the published official “unemployment” figures and instead concentrate on the pure number of people with full time or adequate employment. Everybody knows someone who has given up and retired early or gone underground etc. We need to be creating jobs..not watching a meaningless statistic..manipulated and made meaningless by people dropping out of the work force.
Wrong. Our biggest problem is in the WH.
That is a symptom, not the disease.
But it’s at 6.6% and dropping every month! /sarcasm
So let me get this straight: According to statistice, the unemployment rate is lower and jobs data is positive, but according to the polls, people are increasingly concerned about the availability of jobs.
Which is it? These two absolutely contradict each other. Someone is lying, obviously.
The liberals have been lecturing us a lot recently about global warming.
Nancy Pelosi said she has a planet to save. Though she didn’t say which planet.
Add spineless, gutless Eunuchs in Congress to the list of causes. And, of course, Commie RATs.
Whatever it is it has to be fixed or we will continue to slouch toward depression, regardless of who is President. Candidates take notice - Job No 1 is Jobs.
Oh come-on! That's a stupid assertion that only gives him more power: our biggest problem is a congress that is so irresponsible and afraid that it will-not/cannot use it's own authority and a Supreme Court that has respect for neither the Constitution nor the law.
Wha -?? Immigration “reform” — you know, to fix a “broken system” — isn’t the thing keeping people up at night???
obama is the biggest problem in the usa.
Government and politicians are the root cause of unemployment. They are the disease. Unemployment is but one symptom of that disease.
Its been the biggest problem since 2008 yet the public has not held Obama accountable. A large chunk of America seems to buy into the idea that its all still Bush’s fault and more government spending will solve it.
When are Americans (as we can’t trust the media to do so) going to demand the Obama government issue an accurate unemployment rate rather than their bogus 6% rate? Everyone knows that number is fudged.
I’d say it’s the current leadership that is the biggest problem in the US.
And for some reason, they forget that their solution, a carbon tax, will hit the middle class the hardest.
I am very surprised that no one has called them on this. Of course, the general population are brainwashed. So maybe that is why.
