Mind The Gap

The Pew Research Center in Washington DC has done a study that finds most Americans distrust their government.

Hell, I could have told them that, and I only would have charged them half.

The poll found that 73% of Americans presently do not trust the federal government (yeah, I know, that seems kind of low).  When he first took office, the Obama Administration had an 80% distrust rating, so I guess things are trending better.  George Bush Jr, when he took over, had a 40% distrust rating -- by the time he left, it was 75%.  A rough demographic breakdown shows that 44% of Hispanics trust the government, 38% of blacks, and 20% of whites.  Younger Americans seem more likely to trust the government that older people (read that:  people who've actually had to DEAL with the government).

Liberals are more likely to trust the Obama Administration than independents or Republicans.

In other news, the sun rises in the east, the pope is Catholic, and bears, as far as we can determine, still shit in the woods.
