Americans opinion of the federal government has fallen to a record low even as they continue to view local and state governments favorably, according to Pew Research Center survey released on Monday.
The March survey showed Democrats with a more favorable opinion than Republicans of the federal government, at 41 percent to 13 percent.
The poll shows that 63 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of their local government, virtually unchanged since 2007. Fifty-seven percent have a favorable view of their state governments, up 5 percentage points from 2012.

And this before the Boston Marathon got blowed up !!!
Unfortunately, just Like Hitler's Willing Executioners, Goldhagen, 1996, There will always be sufficient numbers of the either evil or igorant to implement absolute evil tyranny.
Those certainly are held in the lowest regard, and will eventually meet their Ceausescu moment.
The poll of low-information voters. Their opinion of Federal Government hits a record low, however, they have a far less favorable opinion of the minority party of 2 thirds of the government with the majority party controlling the 2 most powerful branches of the government. Now that makes perfect sense, especially from the low-information voters.
But Obama’s rating never drops below 40%
Makes no sense at all.
If you believe the what the propoganda media tells you. Yes.
Those monthly free money checks must have been late or not delivered in the amount they thought thus bad for this poll.
Sounds like a great time to start a movement to revert the 17th amendment vis-a-vis general election of Senators.
I would even go as far as promising every sitting Senator 1 free appointed 6 year term to get them to support it.
There is something wrong with the 13% of republicans who approve of the federal government. They are probably RINO Romney voters.
It is going to crash through the bottom of the graph.
