The Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C. has found that fewer Americans than ever trust the decisions made by the government.
According to Pew, almost 60 percent of people in the United States had confidence in the federal government before President Bill Clinton left office. When Bush left, national trust was down to about 25 percent of the nation’s people.
Past presidents fared far better in the minds and eyes of the American populace. Trust was reportedly especially high when President John F. Kennedy was in office.
