WASHINGTON, D.C. — Gallup’s latest update on federal government agency and department ratings finds a partial recovery in attitudes toward the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after sharp declines between 2019 and 2021. Meanwhile, Americans have soured on the job the Federal Reserve Board is doing as it tries to battle inflation. Ratings of other agencies are generally stable, with NASA and the Postal Service getting the most positive evaluations. Gallup’s initial rating of the Department of Justice is among the lowest tested, with about as many saying it is doing a poor job as an excellent or good one.
