Few trust the government, poll finds - latimes.com

Few trust the government, poll finds - latimes.com:

"Only 22% of all Americans surveyed said they trusted the government in Washington almost always or most of the time -- among the lowest measures in half a century -- according to a Pew Research Center survey released Sunday night.

The results point to 'a perfect storm' of public unrest, Pew reports, 'a dismal economy, an unhappy public, bitter, partisan-based backlash and epic discontent with Congress and elected officials.'

Growing numbers of people want government's power curtailed, Pew reports of a March and April survey that found 'less of an appetite for government solutions to the nation's problems -- including more government control over the economy -- than there was when Barack Obama first took office.'"
