Gallup Poll: Confidence in Police Rates Twice That of Mainstream Media


Interesting….


A new Gallup survey has revealed that Americans have approximately twice as much confidence in law enforcement personnel — 52 percent — as they do in newspapers — 24 percent — and television news — 21 percent.

The telephone poll was conducted June 2-7 and included Gallup’s newest survey on confidence in U.S. institutions, which it has updated every year since 1993.

According to an article by Jeffrey M. Jones, “Americans’ confidence in most major U.S. institutions remains below the historical average for each one. Only the military (72 percent) and small business (67 percent) — the highest-rated institutions in this year’s poll — are currently rated higher than their historical norms.”
