Americans Have Little Faith in Their Leaders

A new Washington Post/ABC News poll finds just 37% of Americans say they have either a good amount or a great deal of confidence in President Obama to make the right decisions for the country's future, while 63% say they do not.

Meanwhile, just 27% percent say they have confidence in congressional Democrats to make the right decisions for the country, while 72% do not, and just 19% have confidence in Republicans, while 80% do not.

"For the GOP, the lack of faith in their decision-making includes their own followers. Just 36% of self-identified Republicans say they believe their party's lawmakers will make good decisions. In contrast, a majority of Democrats have confidence in their congressional party."
