40% Trust Local Government More Than State, Federal

via Rasmussen Reports:

Americans have more trust in local government than any other level in our federalist system.

Forty percent (40%) trust local government the most. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 23% trust the federal government the most and only 12% have most confidence in state governments.  (To see question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Adults nationwide was conducted on July 5, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.



This amuses me.  It’s like those 40% of people think that they’re local politicians are better people than the others.  All national politicians were, at one time, local politicians.
