While both Congress and the media have very low confidence levels, the Democrat-controlled Congress has an even lower confidence level than its Democrat-allied establishment media.
Fifty-nine percent have no or not much confidence in Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) Congress. Just 36 percent have a lot or some confidence in the institution.
In contrast, 46 percent of respondents have some or a lot of confidence in the establishment media, a ten-point difference. Forty-seven percent have not much or no confidence in the media, a 12-point difference.
That number of people having more confidence in the media is rather interesting given the ratings tanking for almost all outlets of late.
The lack of confidence in both the Democrat-controlled Congress and the media is likely a result of one-sided activism that results in many falsehoods. For example, both Democrats and the media suggested Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation. Both engaged in pushing the Jussie Smollett hoax, and both alleged Donald Trump won the presidency due to Russian collusion.
In all three cases, the Democrat machine was proven wrong. Smollett was proven guilty. The establishment media finally admitted Hunter’s laptop was authentic. And Mueller’s investigation found that Donald Trump did not collude with Russia to win the 2016 election.
The left and their employees in Congress have been striking out across the board. Kyle Rittenhouse is another losing cause for them as is labeling January 6, 2021, invasion of the Capitol building an “insurrection.” Not much in the narratives put forth by the left has really turned out to be true, and the people noticed.
That margin may well be much larger depending on the sample polled.
