American's really don't trust Congress either

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

AP/Ipsos new poll has bad numbers for Congress on honesty and ethics. Not much of a surprise with DeLay and Frist in charge. The key is how the Democrats make it work for them:

Only one-third of Americans give Congress good ratings for its ethics and honesty, according to an AP-Ipsos poll that found more evidence of the public's longstanding disdain for the legislative branch of government.

Investigations of two top congressional leaders have drawn more attention to Congress' low standings, though analysts say other factors such as the Iraq war and gas prices are likely contributors to the dip this year in Congress' ratings.

Almost half in the poll, 45 percent, give Congress poor marks for its honesty and ethics, and 21 percent said congressional ethics were neither good nor poor.
