This Speaks for Itself

Low Confidence Almost Across the Board in Major Institutions
January 16, 2009

That Americans have a low opinion of Congress and the media is nothing new, and in fact the latest IBD/TIPP Poll found that only 12% have much confidence in the former and 15% in the latter.

But a year of trouble has also taken a toll on the reputation of banks and financial institutions. Only 15% of those surveyed have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in them.

Even capitalism has taken its lumps, with only 25% expressing real confidence in our economic system.

The picture is a little more mixed for the presidency.

The military, by contrast, gets a big thumbs-up from 75%.
