WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– Americans have completely lost faith of those who serve on the Hill, as a recent Gallup poll finds only 7 percent of citizens have a 'great deal' or 'quite a lot' of confidence in Congress, the lowest rating of any institution in the history of Gallup.
Americans' current confidence in Congress is not only the lowest on record, but also the lowest Gallup has recorded for any institution in the 41-year trend. This is also the first time Gallup has ever measured confidence in a major U.S. institution in the single digits. Currently, 4% of Americans say they have a great deal of confidence in Congress, and 3% have quite a lot of confidence. About one-third of Americans report having "some" confidence, while half have "very little," and another 7% volunteer that they have "none." — Source
