Gallup confidence poll, part 2

by @ 7:59 on June 21, 2007. Filed under Miscellaneous.

If you’re either a night owl or an early bird, you may have heard me reference the 2007 Gallup Confidence in Institutions poll. The 2007 analysis is now up, and my suspicion of a cynical trend is right. First, the full 2007 numbers of those having a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence:
- The military, down to 69% from 73% in 2006
- Small business, a “new” institution debuting at 59%
- The police, down to 54% from 58%
- Church/organized religion, down to 46% from 52%
- Banks, down to 41% from 49%
- SCOTUS, down to 34% from 40%
- Public schools, down to 33% from 37%
- The medical system, down to 31% from 38%
- The Presidency, down to 25% from 33%
- Television news, down to 23% from 31%
- Newspapers, down to 22% from 30%
- The criminal justice system, down to 19% from 25%
- Organized labor, down to 19% from 24%
- Big business, unchanged from 2006 at 18%
- HMOs, unchanged from 2006 at 15%
- Congress, down to 14% from 19%

Next, something they didn’t do this year, but did last year, the full history of the trend:

Damn, but I thought the DhimmiRATs were supposed to fix everything. I mean, they run Congress, run the media, run the unions, and run the schools; yet those institutions took some of the hardest hits.
