Across a range of institutions affecting their lives and livelihoods, a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll finds Iowans have the most confidence in the armed forces, God and the Iowa State Patrol.(Mom and apple pie weren't polled.)

Emily Moore, a poll respondent from Waukon, was among those placing great trust in the military and State Patrol and very little in Congress and the media.
Organized religion, too, has seen an erosion of trust, receiving a 3.7 average on the 6-point scare.
That’s down from 3.9 in 2002 and 4.2 in earlier years.
At the other end of the scale, Congress rates a 2.7 average, the media 2.9 and the presidency 3.1.

Although the average rating, at 3.1, is right near the middle of the scale, a 47-percent plurality of respondents say they have low confidence in the president of the United States. With a Republican now occupying the White House, 68 percent of GOP respondents report high confidence in the presidency — a view just 5 percent of Democrats share.
