Poll: Voters not confident in Congress handling economy

Another 27 percent of respondents are "at least somewhat confident" that Congress knows what it is doing on the economy, and 6 percent are "very confident."

These findings show little change from surveys dating back to September of 2008, just after the Wall Street meltdown that included the fall of the financial firm Lehman Brothers. Back then, 67 percent of respondents were not confident in Congress's ability to handle the economy, while 26 percent were somewhat confident.
