In 2007, before the recession hit, 41 percent of Americans reported having a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in U.S. banks, according to Gallup.com.

As of June 2012, only 21 percent of Americans have confidence in banks, the lowest in 30 years.

Historically, 42 percent of Americans on average have confidence in banks.
