Every five in ten Americans do not trust their government
According to the independent research center in Washington, the number of American citizens, who do not trust their own government, continues to grow, CBS Washington reports.
The report data were collected by independent research center Pew Research. It was revealed that representatives of all demographic groups, regardless of their loyalties and interests, lose faith in the government and in the decisions that the government takes.
Pew Research published the results of the research on its website.
"However, there are a number of mismatches," - the report says - "Hispanic and black population trusts the federal government at a greater extent than the white population does."
In addition, the younger the person, the more they trust the U.S. government. Republicans and those declaring themselves independent individuals, are less inclined to trust the government than the Liberals.
According to Pew Research, during Bill Clinton's presidency, the percentage of confidence made up 60. Nowadays, the percentage of non-confidence equals 73.
Thus, on average, 7 out of 10 Americans do not trust the government.
