Gallup Poll: the Most Knowledgeable Americans Hold Government in Greatest Contempt


An interesting new poll by Gallup: those voters who have the most knowledge of current events and government policies have the greatest contempt for government.

As the Libertarian Party writes:

“The fundamental finding is that Americans who know the most about how Congress operates are not only the most negative about Congress in general, but also about the Republicans and Democrats in Congress specifically. This reinforces the general conclusion that criticisms of Congress — and the partisan leaders in Congress — are based on a realistic assessment of what these entities are doing rather than a lack of awareness of or interest in what they are doing.”
