POLL: Confidence in Congress Hits Record Low

A new Gallup poll just released shows that Americans' confidence in Congress is at an all-time low. Only 10 percent of Americans polled said they have confidence in Congress, coming in last out of the 16 institutions included in the poll. According to Gallup, this is the lowest level of confidence the polling organization has found for any institution since 1973.

The institution with the highest confidence level was the military with 76 percent of those polled showing confidence in the organization. Also scoring above 50 percent confidence level was small business (65 percent) and the police (57 percent).
