High Favorable Ratings for CDC, NASA, DOD; Mixed Ratings for IRS
Unlike most government agencies the CDC (Communicable Diseases Center) enjoy some trust by the nation. The department of health and human services and CMS have shot themselves in the foot so many times, that few trust the overlying political exigencies affecting their day to day operation. Ultimately congress is responsible, however the messenger is always HHS. HHS does not make the rules....it carries out the congressional mandate and the people's will.
The public continues to express positive views of many agencies of the federal government, even though overall trust in government is near historic lows. In fact, favorable opinions surpass unfavorable views for seven of eight government agencies tested – the IRS is the lone exception. In a survey last February, however, just 24% said they could trust the government in Washington always or most of time. (See this interactive for more on trust in government.)
