Only 8% of Americans say Covid-19 is the country's top problem. That's compared to the all-time high of 45% of American's who said it was the top problem in the U.S. a little over a year ago. That's according to a recent Gallup poll.
Gallup says the new poll is the first time Covid-19 concerns were not one of the top two concerns cited since the pandemic originally became a top concern. Worries about the government, race relations, immigration and the economy all outweighed concerns over Covid-19, says Gallup.
Less than a third of those polled say they are satisfied with the direction of the country. Sixty-three percent (63%) say they are dissatisfied with the direction the country is headed, says Gallup.
Satisfaction with the country's direction is deeply divided along political party lines, with 61% of Democrats reporting they are satisfied while only 8% of Republicans are. Independents report 32% satisfaction with the direction of the country.

Gallup poll: Americans' top concerns and satisfaction rating
Bob Smith says
After we began to see the real data, not wild inaccurate projections, and that of those who get it, the mass majority would have a 99.97% survival rate, and then the Great Burlington Declaration, my concern fell off a cliff last year.
If it were to mutate into something truly deadly, not this "delta" scare that is currently going on, then it would make sense to revisit precautions. But only if the data/evidence confirmed it.
