Government Is the Problem
One in four Americans (25%) say the most important problem facing the U.S. is government, putting it at the top of the list of their concerns for June. This is up from 18% in May and is the highest percentage citing government since November 2013, when 26% of Americans did so shortly after the partial government shutdown ended.
Democrats are currently more likely than Republicans to mention government as the most important problem, though higher percentages of each group name it this month. Currently, 31% of Democrats and 24% of Republicans cite dissatisfaction with government as the top issue, up from 24% and 13%, respectively, last month.
