    What is the “most important problem” facing the country today? That’s a question that Gallup regularly asks Americans and the most recent edition of that survey just dropped this week. You might imagine that crime, inflation, high prices, or the border crisis would be at the top of the list. To be sure, plenty of people cited those issues. But the number one problem on the list was “The Government/Poor Leadership.” More than one in five people (21%) chose that answer, a notable increase from the same survey conducted a few months earlier. So Joe Biden’s presidency continues to set...

    In a new survey conducted in January, Americans said the government/poor leadership is “the most important problem facing this country today.” The second most important problem cited is inflation. […] Immigration was in third place, cited by 11% of adults; economy in general, 10%; and race relations/racism, 5%. On the political scale, 24% of Republicans said government was the number one problem, as did 18% of Democrats. […] In this latest survey, economic confidence is at –39%. “The latest –39 reading is identical to last month but well above the –58 score last June amid high gas prices and the...

    In a recent survey, Gallup discovered that 46% of Americans, nearly half the country, have a gun in their home, and 33% said that they “personally” own a gun. In the survey of 1,009 adults, aged 18 and older, Gallup asked, “Do you have a gun in your home?” In response, 46% said they have a “gun in home or elsewhere on property,” and 33% said they “personally own a gun.” “Personal gun ownership has averaged 30% since 2005, when it was first measured,” reported Gallup. “Household gun ownership was higher in the early 1990s than it is now, but...

    Belief in God among U.S. adults sank to an all-time low this year, according to recent data from a Gallup survey. According to the survey, most U.S. adults — 81 percent — believe in God. But while that figure seems high, it is actually the lowest percentage ever reported in this survey. Up until 2011, over 90 percent said they believed in God, but the number has continued to drop, now down eight points from the 89 percent who expressed belief in God in 2016. The previous low was set in 2014, when 86 percent said they believed in God.

    More than double the number of Americans in the U.S. say they identify as LGBTQ than they did a decade ago, a trend led by Gen Z, results from a new Gallup poll revealed this week. A record 7.1 percent of Americans identify as straight or heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, a percentage which is up from 3.5 percent of Americans in 2012. It has been steadily increasing since the poll began. The poll also found that 86.3 percent of Americans say they are straight or heterosexual, while 6.6 percent did not offer their orientation. Gallup estimates from these...

    A new Gallup poll shows the cratering view the American people have taken of the U.S. economy under President Joe Biden. The Big Three evening news networks buried it for nearly a week. The results of the Gallup survey — released Feb. 2 — of 811 U.S. adults found that a mere 33 percent are satisfied with the state of the U.S. economy. That’s a 10 percentage-point free fall from the same survey conducted in 2021 when 43 percent of Americans were satisfied. The new statistic is also a 35-point drop from the 68 percent of Americans in 2020 who...

    Joe Biden's policies since he took office have allowed inflation to surge in the United States, with gasoline prices up by more than a dollar a gallon across wide regions, food more costly and even consumer items demanding higher prices because of those increases in transportation costs. Now a new poll from Gallup confirms what consumers already know all too well: it's causing hardship for them. The poll revealed that Biden's inflation is causing "hardship" for nearly half of the nation's population – 45% to be exact. And it hits hardest at those who can least afford it, the poll...
  • Joe Biden's approval ratings are worse than every recent president -- except 1 -- at this stage

    (CNN) Roughly nine months into his presidency, Joe Biden is on the verge of writing his name into the history books -- and not in a good way. The latest polling from Gallup pegs the President's approval at just 42%, the lowest of his term to date and the second lowest of any president Gallup has measured at this moment in their presidency over the last almost five decades. Here's a look at Biden's approval in comparison to his predecessors in Gallup polling (all of this data comes courtesy of the terrific Gallup Presidential Approval Center): * Biden 42% (272...

    President Biden approval rating is leveling off at 42 percent, according to Gallup poll released Friday. The survey, conducted Oct. 1-19, found that 52 percent disapprove of the job Biden is doing as president, while a separate six percent had no opinion. The poll found Biden’s approval rating essentially holding steady after sliding to 43 percent in September, which was the first time Gallup recorded a majority disapproved of Biden’s job performance. At that time, Biden was facing bipartisan criticism for his handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

    Six-point decline in approval since June... Before this month, his ratings had not shown meaningful variation during his time in office... The new rating is from a July 6-21 Gallup poll, which also finds that 45% of U.S. adults disapprove of Biden's performance and 5% do not have an opinion. It comes at a time when U.S. progress in fighting the coronavirus has stalled, with vaccination rates slowing and case levels now rising. The economic recovery continues, with unemployment declining and stock market values near record highs. But consumers are paying higher prices for gas and other goods. Biden has...

    Church is essential. That’s what many of us have said in the face of ongoing COVID restrictions. But to a growing number of Americans, church is not essential — even among those who believe.Gallup surveys the religious attitudes and practices of Americans twice each year. They roll this data into three-year chunks for comparison over time. From 1998-2000, 69% of American adults were members of a church, synagogue, temple, or mosque. By 2008-2010, that figure had dropped to 62%. And by 2018-2020, just 49%. So over one decade, a drop of 7%. Then over the next decade, a drop of...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 29 March A.D. 2021 | Paul Bedlard
    Even with Easter less than a week away, America just isn’t into churches anymore. For the first time in eight decades, and likely ever, church membership for those in a country built on the freedom to worship has fallen below 50%. The latest Gallup survey on church membership — a data point the polling firm first asked about in 1937 — said just 47% of Americans belong to a church, synagogue, or mosque. The historic decline comes as fewer and fewer Americans are attending church, and more, especially younger adults, are claiming to have no affiliation with any religion. Every...

    In a March 24 blog, Gallup CEO and Chairman Jim Clifton reported that 42 million adults in Latin America and the Caribbean said they would like to immigrate to the United States. "There are 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Roughly 450 million adults live in the region. Gallup asked them if they would like to move to another country permanently if they could," wrote Clifton. Twenty-seven percent of those adults said "yes." That equals roughly 120 million who want to migrate somewhere. From that group, Gallup asked them "where they would like to move." "Of those who...

Bush exited the office in 2009, when the younger Bush saw historically low ratings.According to RealClearPolitics’ aggregate of polls, Trump is moving out of the White House with a nearly 40 percent approval rating overall. Bush enjoyed just under 30 percent of Americans on his side at this same point in his presidency.One recent poll by the Pew Research Center made headlines this month. It was conducted in the aftermath of the attacks on Capitol Hill and...
