Americans disapprove of their government on almost every level. President Trump’s approval rating has been underwater since the moment he took office. Before that, Obama was underwater politically for nearly the entirety of his Presidency. Likewise, Congress has had an approval rating of less than 30 percent for more than a dozen years. Confidence in the Supreme Court has reached an all time low. It is easy for the average citizen to look at government and see that it is an institution that clearly is not working.
