Colbert Called to Hill; Public Trust of Congress at Record Low
A record-low 36% of Americans have a great deal or fair amount of trust and confidence in the legislative branch of government, down sharply from the prior record low of 45% set last year. Trust in the judicial branch and trust in the executive branch also suffered sharp declines this year but remain higher than trust in the legislative branch.
Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden, whom reality can escape sometimes, is going around saying:
I guarantee you we’re going to have a majority in the House and a majority in the Senate. I absolutely believe that...On November 3 . . . there will be in Washington, D.C., a Democratic majority in the House and a Democratic majority in the Senate
