In a recent survey, Gallup found that Americans still rate the Republican Party – 39% – less favorably than the Democratic Party – 46%. However, both parties’ favorability ratings are down from November 2012, just after the presidential election. The Democrats’ favorability rating dropped more, down from 51%, which was a post-election bump just after President Barack Obama won re-election. Even though Americans’ ratings of the Democratic Party clearly show that bump is over, their views of the GOP are the lowest since May of 2010.

Americans’ confidence in Congress as an institution is down to 10%, which is the legislative body’s lowest ranking the and last on Gallup’s list of 16 societal institutions for the fourth straight year. Incredibly, this is the lowest level of confidence Gallup has found, not only for Congress, but for any institution on record. Americans remain most confident – 76% – in the institution that is the United States military.

Former president George W. Bush’s approval rating has improved, with 49% of Americans now viewing him favorably and 46% unfavorably. That is the first time since 2005 that opinions of him have been more positive than negative.
