Gallup – Americans’ Confidence in Institutions Stays Low

Gallup – Jim Norman: “…Banks, Organized Religion, News Media, Congress Fell Most Over Past Decade

  • Confidence in institutions stays near historical lows
  • Confidence in newspapers, organized religion now at record lows
  • Confidence in institutions has slumped for a decade

“Americans’ confidence in the nation’s major institutions continues to lag below historical averages, with two institutions — newspapers and organized religion — dropping to record lows this year. The overall average of Americans expressing “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in 14 institutions is below 33% for the third straight year.”
