According to a new Harris Poll, the United States military is the most admired institutions by Americans.

A total of 47 percent of Americans said they have a “great deal” of confidence in the military. Some 38 percent of Americans said they had “only some” confidence and 14 percent said they had “hardly any” confidence in the military.

The military was followed in the poll by small business – a new category in 2005 – with 45 percent of Americans saying they had a great deal of confidence; colleges and universities, 38 percent; the Supreme Court, 33 percent; and Medicine, 31 percent.

At the bottom of the survey, released March 2, were law firms at 10 percent, Congress at 10 percent, organized labor at 12 percent, major companies at 13 percent and the press at 14 percent.

Anchoring the middle was organized religion at 30 percent, the White House at 25 percent, public schools at 22, the courts and justice system at 21, and television news at 19.

So let’s see Liberal America: US Military ranks #1. Small Business is #2. The Roberts Supreme Court is #4. And rounding out the bottom is TV news (19%) and the Press in general (14% and the bottom). Organized religion and “The White House” are way above the overall court system and the media.

No wonder the Democrat Party, Hollywood and the Mainstream Media don’t “get” America.
