A near record bloc of American voters cite a lack of leadership in the US federal government as the No.1 problem facing the United States, a new Gallup poll revealed on MondayWASHINGTON (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 21st October, 2019) A near record bloc of American voters cite a lack of leadership in the US Federal government as the No.1 problem facing the United States, a new Gallup poll revealed on Monday.
"Amid House Democrats' impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump's dealings with Ukraine, a near-record-high 34 percent of Americans cite the government, poor leadership or politicians as the most important problem currently facing the United States," a press release summarizing the poll said.
Meanwhile, Americans' satisfaction with the way things are going in the United States has fallen to 28 percent, primarily because Republicans are less likely to be satisfied, the release said.
Satisfaction overall has fallen to a level seen during and shortly after the nation's longest federal government shutdown last winter, according to the release.
Gallup surveys of Americans' views of the nation's most important problems date back to 1939.
