Several new polls have revealed that the people’s confidence in the US media, government, and justice system is collapsing, with it being the lowest average ever seen before.

According to the Gallup Organization’s most recent national poll, Americans’ confidence in major U.S. institutions, such as the government and the media, is in a state of collapse, with an average of just 27% across all categories.
The majority of Americans still have faith in just the military and small businesses.
The 27 percent average across all categories is the lowest Gallup has ever seen, despite the fact that public trust in institutions has been low for the most of the past 15 years.
The company started tracking institutional trust in 1973 and has done so annually since 1993.

The survey results followed sobering news from Gallup on June 22. The company reported at the time that confidence in the country’s general direction dropped to 13% that month, down 3% from May and 9% from March when the figure was 24%.
At the time, it was also reported that President Joe Biden’s job approval rating remained stable at 41% between May and June despite the continuous economic downturn.
The New York Post reported on July 9 that the daily monitoring poll of registered voters by Civiqs Poll indicated that Biden’s popularity rating has fallen to a new record low of just 30%, casting doubt on Gallup’s conclusion on the matter.
A record low of 38 percent of U.S. adults say they are “extremely proud” to be Americans, according to a June 29 Gallup report. This is the lowest percentage for this category since the company started tracking the issue in 2001. Despite this, 96 percent of U.S. adults expressed pride in being Americans to varying degrees.
Another 27 percent of Americans classified themselves as “very proud,” 22 percent as “moderately proud,” and 9 percent as “only a little proud.”
4% of respondents claimed to be “not at all” proud to be Americans.
In the most recent Gallup poll, Americans exhibited less faith in institutions than they did a year prior, with notable drops in 11 of the 16 institutions studied and no increases for any of them.
The Supreme Court and the presidency as an institution, as opposed to the current president’s performance in office, saw the biggest drops.
At 23% right now, confidence in the President is 15 percentage points lower than it was in 2021.
The Supreme Court scored 25%, a drop of 11 points from 2021. Before the court issued controversial decisions on abortion and gun rights that have since become landmark rulings, the survey was completed.
Compared to a year ago, only 7% of people now have confidence in Congress.
The president, Congress, and Supreme Court all had record-low Gallup ratings.
