Americans’ Trust in Military Is Declining, Survey Finds
A growing number of Americans are increasingly losing trust and confidence in the U.S. military, according to a new Ronald Reagan Institute poll.
In less than three years, that trust and confidence has fallen from 70 percent in 2018 to just 56 percent today, the February survey of 2,500 adults has found. The lowest numbers were found among Americans under 30 years old.
“We really are focusing on this and are concerned about this,” Roger Zakheim, Washington director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, said during a Wednesday call with journalists.
