The Victory Group President Adam Goodman was featured on the O’Reilly Factor to discuss a recent Gallup poll on what Americans say were the biggest problems of 2014.
According to a new Gallup poll, Americans see government incompetence as the biggest problem facing the country today. “Lack of leadership is the biggest problem we’re facing,” agreed Republican strategist Adam Goodman, “because it breeds a loss of confidence. Belief in the presidency is at an all-time low, and the biggest headline of the president’s tenure has been ‘lie of the year,’ referring to his misstatements on ObamaCare. That gets people shaken up and they start to lose confidence across the board.”
Political strategist Nomiki Konst reported that Americans have lost trust in government across the board. “It’s not just the president, it’s also Congress. Everybody is looking to get the quick approval of the public and no one wants to tell the truth anymore. No one is passing legislation, no one is working with one another, all they’re doing is going back to their districts to raise money.” Elaborating on the Gallup survey, Eric reported that many Americans are also concerned about jobs and the economy, but not especially troubled by terrorism, race relations, or income inequality.
