The Tic-controlled Congress has the confidence of 11% of the American people:
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.
To put this in perspective, used car salesmen got 24%, Lindsay Lohan got 18%, and the Snooki from Jersey Shore clocked 14%
The part that should have gotten the headline? The Presidency dropped from 51 to 39% over the past year.
Let’s see if we can get it into single digits!
