While the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling on the Affordable Care Act has placed the country’s health care system in the forefront, a Gallup poll conducted this month found that only 6 percent of Americans describe health care as the top problem in the U.S.
Respondents were reportedly more likely to mention the economy, joblessness, the deficit and “problems in government.”
Gallup notes that the coverage surrounding the Supreme Court decision may make future respondents more likely to name the health care system as their top concern. Since 2001, the average amount of respondents who cited health care has been 8 percent.
The poll was conducted among 1,004 adults between June 7th and 10th.
