Oops, I misread that. Congress ranks last in confidence: 11%
Gallup’s 2010 Confidence in Institutions poll finds Congress ranking dead last out of the 16 institutions rated this year. Eleven percent of Americans say they have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in Congress, down from 17% in 2009 and a percentage point lower than the previous low for Congress, recorded in 2008.
I’d be hard pressed to come up with a worse example. It would be bad enough if they were just inept and useless, like the Post Office, but they’re actively engaged in destroying the United States.
On second thought, I’m surprised it’s as high as 11. (insert goes to 11 joke here)
