Most Americans blame Congress for money woes


About 72 percent of Americans assign some blame to Congress for their own financial woes.

Almost three-quarters of Americans (72 percent) assign some blame to Congress for their own financial situation, and 71 percent blame Wall Street, according to a recent Harris Poll.

Two in five adults (43 percent) blame Wall Street "a great deal" for their woes, and 38 percent finger Congress. Seventy percent of Democrats blame Congress; 75 percent of Republicans and independents agree.

Three in five Americans (63 percent) blame large corporations, and 60 percent blame state government for their financial situation. Just less than half blame the president and local government for their financial situation. Only 39 percent blame themselves.
