Confidence In Congress

Review Figure 6.1, "Confidence in Congress." Why do you believe Congress receives such a low confidence rating?
Based solely on Table 6.1, even with no further information one could assume based on the facts depicted in the table that the overall can be based on the public being closed-off so to speak.

Firstly, the fact of the matter is that the people believe more in things they see the outcome from, and very few have any ties to congress anyways. The military is undoubtedly at the top of the charts; this is understandable because many know service-members, and their successes and dedication can be verified through media and their personal stories.

Do you believe the President 's foreign policy powers should be dominant and he should have exclusive control over foreign relations or do you believe Congress should play more of a role in these affairs?

The synopsis is Presidents should represent us, they should be stringently tested, but once they are in office they may be impeached; but they should be able to run the nation and do it unattested. The factors of what a President should be and the testing of his integrity and honor should come far before he reaches
