Slowly but surely, Americans are losing trust in one government institution after another, and ironically, perhaps, it is the government itself — those elected and appointed who comprise it — who are most to blame for our loss of faith.

The approval rating for Congress, for example, has been bottoming out for decades, but since President Obama took office, the floor has finally given way: A July survey by Gallup found that just 16 percent of Americans view the Legislative Branch positively; more than one in five said that replacing all current members is the best way to “fix” the institution.

Still, as The Associated Press notes in a recent story, as other American institutions began to falter as well in the minds of the public, just a handful were still held in high esteem:

To safeguard the president, there was the solidity of the Secret Service. To stand vigil against distant enemies, the U.S. nuclear missile corps was assumed to be on the job. And to ward off threats to public health, the nation counted on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
