A new Gallup poll reveals that the three biggest issues concerning Americans are jobs, the economy, and government. Twenty percent said unemployment and jobs are among the most important problems facing the country in May, up from 14% in April.
The Gallup poll also shows an unsurprisingly low amount of public concern over issues like race, immigration, climate change, and the gap between the rich and poor.
When broken down by party, zero Republican respondents said the environment and race relations mattered, while just two percent of independents thought those issues were important. 25 percent of Democrats thought Unemployment and jobs were “most important,” while another 15 percent of Republicans and 13 percent of independents said poor healthcare and the high cost of healthcare were “most important” to them.
Indeed, Team Obama released it’s new study on Climate change in an effort to make global warming a key issue in upcoming elections. Over the weekend, California governor Jerry Brown blamed his state’s wildfires on climate change warning that “humanity is on a collision course with nature.” Just today, Sec. of State John Kerry told the graduating class at Boston College that climate change is an “immediate threat to your job, your communities or your families.” Philledelphia Mayor Michael Nutter posited that “climate change will cause more flooding” in his city. Liberal groups are now saying climate change is racism. And who can forget those silly Senate Democrats who held a all night talkathon on climate change?
Despite liberal politicians, professional agitators, and the mainstream media’s concerted efforts to make racism, man-made climate change, and immigration reform politically relevant matters, most Americans’ concern with these issues are nearly nonexistent.
