Almost no one trusts Congress…(About Time!!)
Confidence in Congress lowest ever in Gallup poll
June 13, 2013
Chalk up a very dubious distinction for Congress: Americans’ confidence in the institution has fallen to its lowest level ever.
That’s according to Gallup on Thursday, in a new poll ranking the combined House and Senate dead last on a list of societal institutions for the fourth year in a row.
Confidence in the legislative branch is at just 10%, down three percentage points from last year’s poll, Gallup said.
According to the polling organization: “The divided Congress, with Democrats controlling the Senate and Republicans the House, is likely part of the reason for the low levels of confidence rank-and-file Democrats and Republicans express, and is tied to Americans frustrations with Congress’ inability to get much done.”
