A new Gallup poll has found lobbyists and Members of Congress ranked at the bottom of the list of the professions ranked for honesty and ethical standards.

The 
Gallup Poll
 was conducted Dec. 5-8 and asked the question, “Please tell me how you would rate the honesty and ethical standards of people in these different fields — very high, high, average, low or very low?” The second profession to the bottom was being a Member of Congress and at the very bottom was being a lobbyist.

Nurses, pharmacists, and grade school teachers were at the top of the list.
