Poll: Americans view local government most favorably; gap widens on state, federal
from California County News
The results of two recent polls show that once again voters and Americans are far more inclined to trust their local government than the federal or state government. While only 33 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the federal government, roughly 2 to 1 of Americans offer a favorable assessment of their local government, according to the Pew Research Center. Simply put, about the same amount of people view local government favorably as they view federal government unfavorably. This stat is particularly notable because it was only 10 years ago that Americans who were polled had favorable assessments of all three levels of government.
