Congress as Public Enemy: Public Attitudes toward American Political Institutionsby John R. Hibbing, Elizabeth Theiss-Morse
Pub. Date: 07/28/2010
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Much of the negativity directed at the U.S. Congress by the American people is generated by popular perceptions of governing. This study concludes, however, that the public's unwitting desire to reform a democratic legislature is a cure more dangerous than the disease.
