Confidence in Congress: Lowest ever for any institution


From Gallup

Just 12% of Americans express confidence in Congress, the lowest Gallup has measured for any institution in the 35-year history of the confidence in institutions question.

If you watch c-span as much as I do, then you can understand why Congress gets such a low rating. A partisan spin on every touchstone issue is the norm.

They're way too beleagured by partisan rhetoric and pandering to lobbyists.

I'm not surprised it's low (obviously), but I am a little surprised that it's *that* low. 13%? Wow.
