Democracy & Technology Blog Pew cites diminished trust in government

Pew Research Center surveys find that only 22% percent of the public say they can “trust the government in Washington almost always or most of the time, among the lowest measures in half a century,” according to Andrew Kohut.
Just 40% say it is a good idea for the government to exert more control over the economy, while a 51% majority says it is not. The one exception Pew found was public support for stricter regulation of the way major financial companies do business, which is favored by a 61% to 31% margin.
