Gallup: The #1 Issue Concerning Americans Is…

Unemployment.

You hear that, President Obama? Not universal health care.

Unemployment.

During his State of the Union address, Obama made it clear that creating jobs would be his number-one priority during 2010. He said:

But I realize that for every success story, there are other stories, of men and women who wake up with the anguish of not knowing where their next paycheck will come from; who send out resumes week after week and hear nothing in response. That is why jobs must be our number-one focus in 2010…

Well, it hasn’t been. Just like it wasn’t in 2009.

Instead, he’s spent most of his time pushing a universal health care bill that the majority of Americans don’t want. He’s given 52 speeches on health care reform since March 5th of last year, and is now back in full campaign mode trying to rally support for his bill.

And he says jobs are his number-one priority. Unreal.

Here are the full results of the poll from Gallup:

What do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?

  1. Unemployment – 31%
  2. Economy in general – 24%
  3. Health care – 20%
  4. Dissatisfaction with govt – 10%
  5. Federal budget deficit – 8%
  6. Lack of money – 5%
