According to a Gallup poll, Americans believe that government was the biggest problem in the country in 2015. 

The poll showed that 16 percent of those polled believe that some part of government — including President Obama and Congress — was the biggest problem facing the country last year. That number was down two points from 2014, when 18 percent said the same.

The economy was the second biggest problem at 13 percent, with immigration and unemployment tying in third at 8 percent each.

The poll also showed that 2015 was the first year since 2007 that immigration was one of the top four most cited problems among U.S. citizens. It was also the first time since 2001 that no issue got 20 percent of the vote or higher.
