Here’s an intriguing snapshot of just who trusts whom nowadays: The Institute of Politics at Harvard surveyed 3,103 18- to 29-year-olds and asked them this: How often do you trust (insert entrenched authority paradigm here) to do the right thing? (all of the time/most of the time).
The survey found America’s next generation of decision makers saying they trust the federal government to do the right thing a whopping 22% of the time, Congress 18% of the time, Wall Street 12% of the time and the media (ahem) 11% of the time.
Candidates running in the next few election cycles? Ignore these numbers at your peril.
