What Profession Was Voted the Most Honest, and Guess Who is The Least?
With the way Americans feel about Congress today, this has to feel like a win for them. In an annual Gallup poll asking Americans to rank different professions by their honesty and ethics, Congress DIDN'T come in last. Nope, they came in SECOND-to-last.
CAR SALESMEN finished dead last. Only 8% of people say car salespeople have high or very high honesty standards. 10% of people said members of Congress have high or very high honesty standards.
Nurses were rated the most honest profession, at 85%. The rest of the top 10 most honest professions are: Pharmacists, doctors, engineers, dentists, police officers, college professors, members of clergy, psychiatrists, and chiropractors.
The bottom 10 are: Car salespeople, members of Congress, people in advertising, stockbrokers, HMO managers, senators, insurance salespeople, lawyers, state governors, and business executives.
