Gallup: First Time Majority Finds Congress’ Honesty and Ethics Image Low-Very Low

Posted on December 13, 2009

I’m amazed by this.  A majority of people haven’t thought congress’ ethics weren’t low-very low until now?  No wonder we’re in the mess we’re in.

From the Gallup Report:

PRINCETON, NJ — For the first time in Gallup’s annual Honesty and Ethics of Professions poll, a majority of Americans — 55% — say the honesty and ethical standards of “members of Congress” are low or very low — slightly worse than “senators,” whose ethics are rated low by 49%. By contrast, 83% of Americans say nurses have either very high or high ethical standards, positioning them at the top of Gallup’s 2009 ranking of various professions.
