70% Of Americans Have "No Faith" In Government

Steve Watson

They have no faith in it--and yet they still want it to solve all their problems. This is a logical fallacy. Government is institutionalized mob violence, the idea people need "rulers" to own them and tell them what to do must be discarded just as the idea witch doctors controlled the weather or sacrificing virgins gave you a bountiful harvest. Believing government can solve problems should be viewed equal in logic to believing raping virgins will cure you of AIDS. - Chris, InfoLibAs we move into 2014, a new poll finds that a whopping 70 percent of Americans have absolutely “no faith” in government to make progress on key issues.

The Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey found that 7 in 10 voters do not have any confidence in the government "to make progress on the important problems and issues facing the country in 2014."

The poll also indicates that even fewer, only one in twenty Americans, believe that the current system of government requires no changes.

Drilling down into exact numbers, half of those polled said that said the government requires either "a lot of changes" or “a complete overhaul”.

Respondents cited jobs and the economy, and the nation's debt and deficit spending as key issues which they have no faith in the government to improve. On the issue of national debt, 65 percent say they have no confidence in the government’s ability to fix it.

Unsurprisingly, considering the utter disaster that is Obamacare, the top issue cited by the public in the poll is healthcare reform.

Half of those who said healthcare was a top priority, described themselves as "not at all confident" that members of Congress could make reform a success. Only 20 percent said they are “slightly confident.”

The confusion and overwhelming lack of belief in the political system is emphasized by an almost 50/50 split on whether the government should be doing more or doing less in general. In addition, while 80 percent of voters said they want the government to invest “significant effort” on the top issues, 76 percent of them said they have “little or no confidence” the government will make meaningful progress.

Fifty percent also said that they are generally pessimistic about the emergence of effective leaders from the established political system.

The only level at which more Americans have faith in government than do not is at the local level, with 54 percent expressing “moderate confidence”. At the state level, 45 percent expressed moderate confidence.
