- The Washington Times - Monday, June 30, 2014

Americans’ confidence in all three branches of U.S. government is falling, hitting record lows for the Supreme Court, at 30 percent, and Congress, at 7 percent, while the presidency is at a six-year low of 29 percent.

Gallup says the presidency dropped the most this year, down 7 percentage points from its last rating of 36 percent.

Americans typically have less confidence in Congress than in the other two branches of government, while the presidency and Supreme Court have taken turns in the top spot since 1991, when Gallup began to ask about the branches.

Since June 2013, confidence has fallen 7 points for the presidency, 4 points for the Supreme Court and 3 points for Congress.
