Politico: Gov't favorability at 15-year low

I wonder how Illinoisians view their state government. I think it's somewhat easy to guage how Chicagoans view their city government. I would say for Chicago their view of city government is generally negative. What does Politico say about the nation as a whole:
A decade ago, Americans felt similarly about their local, state and federal governments. No longer.

Today, just one in three has a favorable view of the federal government — the lowest level in 15 years, according to a Pew survey. The majority of Americans remain satisfied with their local and state governments — 61 percent and 52 percent, respectively — but only 33 percent feel likewise about the federal government.
The survey of 1,514 people was conducted Apr. 4-15, with a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
