Political Distrust in the US

A new American poll shows that distrust of politicians has reached an epidemic level. Driven by Republican lies used to fuel the Iraq War, the Enron scandal and concerns of a repeat of the 2000 Election debacle.

The poll found that 61% of respondents had lost faith in politicians over the last four years. The poll found that politicians received a "C" on scales of trustworthiness. Both Kerry and Bush also received Cs. Businessmen received a C- and the media received a C.

The poll also found that more women had faith in their leaders than men.

People most trusted their families and firefighters who both received A-.

The masses are starting to catch on to the fact that their leaders are systematically lying to them and seeking to take advantage of them. Sadly, the public still views the media as remotely trustworthy -- even in light of several media scandals.

Obviously, there is still work to be done.

It's not at all, the Republicans are horrible crooks. They are trying to win this election by cheating.
