Americans tend to be skeptical, especially when it comes to people in positions of power.
For example, 81% of respondents in a new Pew Research Center survey answered they believe members of Congress behave unethically either all or most of the time, or some of the time. That figure wasn’t much lower for leaders of technology companies (77%), religious leaders (69%), local elected officials (66%) and journalists (66%).
A deeper dive shows groups with better ratings have the perception that they care about others or “people like me,” provide fair and accurate information to the public, and handle resources properly.
