What Americans Care About vs. What the Media Cares About

Bloomberg released a poll Monday in which they gauged Americans’ mood six months into the new presidency. While Trump didn’t fare too well, Americans are quite optimistic about the economy in general and their personal financial health.

As part of the study, Bloomberg asked respondents what they think is the top issue facing the country. 

Not surprisingly, health care tops the list of concerns, followed by jobs and security issues. Russia, the issue that has dominated press coverage since the November election, scores a paltry 6 percent on Americans’ top concerns.

Despite the American people caring far more about health care than any other issue, the media has swamped the airwaves with Trump/Russia conspiracies.
