Dubious government super-fun quiz!

Can you guess which of these latest polls is from the United States and which is from Russia?

Country A: "In the October poll, 52 percent of respondents said they did not consider a single branch of power to be honest; 30 percent said they believed [the President] was honest."

Country B: "The poll, conducted Friday night and yesterday, found that 55 percent of the public believes [there are] wider problems 'with ethical wrongdoing' in the [President's administration]... And by a 3 to 1 ratio, 46 percent to 15 percent, [the public says] the level of honesty and ethics in the government has declined rather than risen under [the President]."

Almost as tough as "In which country can a citizen be indefinitely detained with no counsel, phone call or charges?"
