Congress Ranks Last in Confidence in Institutions, Confidence in the Presidency Drops 15%

Gallup has just come out with its newest 2010 Confidence in Institution poll. Congress is ranking at a all-time low - no surprises here! Only 11% of the people polled trust Congress. Sean Hannity quoted:

"11%? This is important because Democrats are trying to say this is an anti-incumbent fever but there’s only one party in power right now in Washington.”

Gallup reported:

This year's poll also finds a 15-point drop in high confidence in the presidency, to 36% from 51% in June 2009. Over the same period, President Barack Obama's approval rating fell by 11 points, from 58% to 47%.
