While President Obama attempts to enact gun control via executive action, a new Gallup poll shows that only 2% of Americans believe “guns/gun control” is among the country’s top problems.
Gallup asked about 1,000 Americans in all 50 states what they thought the nation’s top problems were in 2015, and out of 23 problems mentioned by Americans, “guns/gun control” ranked near the bottom at 19th.
In comparison, 16% of Americans said the government was the nation’s biggest issue, 13% said the economy, 8% said unemployment and 8% said immigration.
“Rounding out the top 10 were a constellation of problems each averaging 5%, including ethical/moral decline, race relations/racism, terrorism, the federal budget deficit or debt and education,” Gallup reported.
But rather than working on these hot-button issues, both President Obama and the mainstream media would rather focus on gun control, with the president even stating he wants “to make gun control part of his legacy,” according to CNN.
In fact, CNN is going to provide an hour of airtime for Obama on Thursday to present a ‘Town Hall’-style pitch for gun control.
“Anderson Cooper will host the 8pm special, which detractors will label a propaganda effort, in the wake of reports that Obama is set to announce executive action on gun control legislation within a week,” Steve Watson reported. “CNN notes that the event, whether purposefully or not, coincides with the fifth anniversary of the shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in an incident in Arizona that killed six others.”
“The Town Hall event will simply be titled ‘Guns in America.'”
