Over The Last 10 Years, The US Public's Favorable Opinion Of The Federal Government Has Gone From 66 Percent To 33 Percent

From Pew Research Center, "33% - Few Americans Have a Favorable Opinion of the Federal Government:"
Just a third of Americans have a favorable opinion of the federal government, the lowest positive rating in 15 years. Yet 61% regard their local governments favorably and 52% have a positive view of their state governments -- making the gap between favorable ratings of the federal government and state and local governments wider than ever.

Ten years ago, roughly two-thirds of Americans offered favorable assessments of all three levels of government: federal, state and local.
