Trust in Congress at all-time low

William Tate
Barack Obama is not the only Democrat in Washington who's having trouble with his poll numbers. Never in Gallup's tracking has the American public's opinion of Congress been so low.

Gallup has released a new survey which shows that only 45% of respondents they have trust and confidence in the Nancy Pelosi/Harry Reid-led Congress. That's the lowest figure since Gallup started keeping score in the early 1970's.

And, despite--or maybe because of--liberals' charges that the Supreme Court has become too conservative, the most trusted government institution is the judicial branch. 76% of folks surveyed said they trust the judiciary. The only institution that comes close is the trust placed in the American people, themselves--at 73%.
