Americans say government, the economy and immigration are the top three problems facing the country today, according to a new poll released Wednesday.
About 15 percent say immigration is the most important issue, jumping up from just 5 percent in June likely due to a flood of unaccompanied minors crossing the border this summer.
About 7 percent of people ranked foreign policy the most important problem right now, making it the sixth biggest concern in August.
More people also reported a fear of war, with 3 percent saying that’s the top problem, up from just 1 percent a month ago.
