Setting Records

The new CBS/New York Time polls should come as no surprise, even if they are setting new records (additional discussion here):

In a poll released Tuesday, just nine percent of Americans said they approve of the job lawmakers on Capitol Hill are doing. The all-time low is down 2 points from an 11 percent approval rating just a month ago, and is the first single digit level since the question was first asked in 1977.

And then there is another record:

According to the poll, which was conducted between October 19-24, Americans also have less trust than ever in the government’s ability to make the right decisions: Just one in ten Americans currently say they trust the government to do what is right all or most of the time – down from 23 percent who said the same just a year ago.

Perhaps it is time, once again, to consider placing “None of the Above” on the 2012 ballot.
