Many people are calling unemployment America's biggest problem.  

A new Gallup poll shows 23 percent now believe joblessness is the biggest challenge facing the nation.  

That's up from 16 percent in January.  

Government and politicians were named as the nation's second biggest problem.  

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says January's unemployment rate stood at six-point-six percent.  

At the height of the recession in October of 2009, joblessness hit 10 percent.
