(CNSNews.com) — Only 6 percent of Americans think that health care is the most important problem facing the country, according to a new Gallup poll.
When asked in June to identify the most important problem facing the country, a whopping 94 percent of Americans named something other than health care as the nation’s top problem, Gallup reported.
The economy (at 31 percent), jobs (25 percent), dissatisfaction with government (12 percent) and the federal budget deficit (11 percent) were all mentioned in front of health care.
In fact, according to Gallup, June’s 6 percent figure was slightly below the average 8 percent of Americans who have mentioned health care as the nation’s top problem each month since January 2001.
During the first six months of this year, 7 percent on average mentioned health care as the top problem.
