Fox News poll: majority of have confidence in CIA, FBI, and SCOTUS

nearvideo-Supreme court showdown: freedom of religion vs. LGBTQ rights

After hearing oral arguments this week, Supreme Court judge will decide whether or not LGBTQ rights should not be part of title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bars discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex and national origin. Depending on the decision that is reached, what might be at stake, for the cause of freedom of religion in these cases? Christopher Hale and Luke Goodrich are here to debate.

Majorities of voters have confidence in U.S. intelligence services and the Supreme court, while less than half of the Congress feel about the media, and Donald Trump, according to the latest Fox News poll, October 6-8.

Nearly 7 of 10 voters have confidence in the FBI (69 percent), Supreme court (68 percent) and the CIA (66 percent), according to the latest Fox News poll.


At the same time, the confidence in the individual dropped in the last couple of years. For example, the trust in the FBI to a high of 80 percent, hit in February 2017. This fell to 73 percent in 2018, and now stands at 69 percent. Confidence in the Supreme court decreased from 83 percent in 2017 to 76 percent last year to 68 percent in the new poll. For the CIA, 73 percent were confident in the year 2017, 70 percent in 2018 and to 66 percent today.

The declines come from different groups of partisans. The GOP in the FBI’s 22 points is the trust below, while Democrats and independents are grown, less confidence in the Supreme court of justice of 25 and 21 points, respectively, since 2017.

Faith in the CIA case, 10 points dropped under Democrats and Republicans compared to two years ago.

Look at the media kept quiet since last year, at 47 percent, convinced, slightly, from 44 percent in 2017.

Democrats have faith, 47 points more likely than Republicans and in the media (71 vs. 24 percent). While it is not new for these views polarized — so many questions — it’s more divided than in the past. In 2014, more Democrats than Republicans had faith in the media by 22 points (54 vs. 32 percent), while in 2003, it was by 16 points (62 versus 46 percent).

More than twice as many independents lack of trust in the media (66 per cent) than trust in them (31 percent).


To approve, while only about a fifth of the voters, of the job that Congress is doing, about 45 percent have confidence in the institution. Last year, 44 percent trust in the Congress. It was 53 percent in 2017.

Trust in Donald Trump stands at 43 percent, the equivalent of his 43-percent approval rate (55 percent oppose). Forty-six percent had confidence in the trump suit in the year 2018, and 45 percent in 2017.
