Massive trust gap splits America
Americans' trust in all big institutions has cratered, but look at the massive gap in who we do trust.
By the numbers: New Gallup polling finds a 45-point split in trust of police — 76% of Republicans vs. 31% of Democrats. Confidence in the church or organized religion — twice as many Rs as Ds, 51% to 26%.
So who do Democrats trust instead?
With President Biden in the White House, 62% of Ds said they trust the presidency vs. 13% of Rs. That's a 49-point delta — the biggest in the survey.
