Just 7-percent of Americans have "a great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in Congress.

University of Miami Political Science professor Joseph Uscinski says it's tough to pinpoint the exact reason.

But Uscinski says it isn't a bad thing that people are skeptical of the job they're doing.

He says part of the problem is we keep electing the same people.

Uscinski doesn't suspect this will impact midterm elections too much.
