    Poll: Only Three Percent of Americans Consider Immigration "Most Important" Problem C

    Poll: Only Three Percent of Americans Consider Immigration "Most Important" Problem

    Christine Rousselle | Dec 13, 2013



    Despite recent pushes by the Obama administration for immigration reform, a new poll released Thursday by Gallup shows that a majority of Americans are far more concerned with other issues such as healthcare, the economy, and a general sense of dissatisfaction with the government.

    Twenty one percent of respondents said that the most important problem facing the United States was dissatisfaction with government, while 19 percent said the economy in general was the most important problem. Rounding out the top three responses was healthcare, which 17 percent labeled as the most important issue. Immigration was second to last with three percent, only slightly above "war/fears of war, lack of respect for each other, and the gap between the rich and the poor," which all garnered two percent of responses.

    Immigration has not ranked in the top five of responses all year, as Americans have shown that they are primarily concerned with the economy and healthcare.

    Republicans should take these polls into mind when strategizing for 2014 and beyond. It's obvious what Americans are not happy about: healthcare and the economy. By presenting clear plans to fix both of these issues, the GOP could make gains in coming elections. Issues like the wage gap and immigration, while trendy among the current administration, simply are just not that important to the average American.

    Christine Rousselle is so mistaken. Why is Town Hall giving this air time?

    I think what she is saying is that the people want Congress to spend time fixing the budget, obamacare, economy, etc, and not spend time on immigration. It indicates to me that even if Americans believe the immigration system is "broken," they also don't want Congress spending time to fix it when there are other matters they see as more pressing. Silver lining

    From a reader's comment at the Townhall site:
    Last Wednesday, Pres. Obama spoke at length about his desire to address an issue NumbersUSA, the TEA PARTY and hundreds of grass root organization has been talking about since its origin -- income disparity in America.

    President Obama said:

    “I believe this is the defining challenge of our time: Making sure our economy works for every working American.” But this President is ignoring the impact of adding 33 million new workers, who are mostly manual, low-skilled, poorly educated, will have on wages for citizens and permanent residents. He seems completely oblivious of the 11.3 million illegal aliens (extremely low number seeing millions were likely hiding in legal family homes, during the 10 year Census; true numbers well over 20 million plus). Obama’s answer to close the gap between the wealthy and the deprived, to simply raise the minimum wage instead of tightening up the labor market, which would force employers to increase wages.

    IMO 'Bama has raised cynicism to new heights. He has abasolutely no qualms about saying things which cannot possibly be true. The healtcare launch debacle has finally caused young Americans to believe that they can't trust him. If the launch had not been botched, 'Bama would still be able to get away with lying. This guy is a con man, and his contempt for America permits him to not be troubled about lying.
