Congress ranks last in Institutions that people have confidence in

PRINCETON, NJ -- 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. . . .

Gallup had congress almost as low in 2008, but Democrats who controlled Congress then still picked up seats. My guess is which party gets the blame actually depends on who controls the presidency.
