Wow, I didn't think people were paying attention, but this makes it look like they are... alot.

Washington (CNN) - Americans' confidence in Congress as an institution has hit an all-time low, according to a new national poll.

Asked about a list of institutions in American society, only 10% of those questioned in a Gallup survey released Thursday say they have confidence in Congress. That's down three percentage points from last year, and according to their release, "this is the lowest level of confidence Gallup has found, not only for Congress, but for any institution on record."

Congress ranks last on a list of 16 institutions. At the top of the list: The U.S. military. Seventy-six percent say they have confidence in the armed forces. The presidency ranked fifth, at 36%.
