Little Confidence in Major American Institutions

Few Americans have much confidence in many key U.S. institutions like local and federal government, big business, agencies like the FBI and CIA and the national news media, according to results from a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal.

The exceptions: A combined 73 percent of American adults have either a “great deal” or “quite a bit” of confidence in the military; 59 percent have a large amount of confidence in police and law enforcement agencies; and 57 percent have a lot of confidence in small business. CONT.
