POLL: Gallup Congressional Confidence


Additional analysis from a recent Gallup national survey of 1,007 adults (conducted 6/11 through 6/14) finds "[t]he percentage of Americans with a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in Congress is at 14%, the lowest in Gallup's history of this measure -- and the lowest of any of the 16 institutions tested in this year's Confidence in Institutions survey. It is also one of the lowest confidence ratings for any institution tested over the last three decades."

Andrew:

Gallup, unlike many other pollsters, has failed to ask their respondents what they think about Republicans in congress as opposed to Democrats in congress.
In all the polls in which these questions have been asked so far, Democrats in congress are seen more favorably than Republicans.
In conclusion, Americans do not like the way Republicans are blocking Democratic attempts to pass bills concerning the most pressing issues.
