Poll finds government falling in public's esteem
By Amelia Gruber

The public views the federal government less favorably this year than
last, Gallup poll results published Tuesday indicate.

Slightly more than a third of respondents to an early August survey by
The Gallup Organization expressed a "positive" or "somewhat positive"
view of the government. This represents a drop of seven percentage
points from a year ago, when 41 percent of Americans surveyed said
they looked favorably upon the government.
