OCTOBER 31, 2017 — In the second nationwide poll conducted for the University of Delaware’s Center for Political Communication (CPC) exploring the divides facing Americans today, a large majority of respondents carry a deep level of distrust for virtually every governing, media, and political institution in America.
In a list of questions gauging which American institutions are trusted, only the military gained a positive rating with 72% trusting and just 13% not.
Members of Congress unsurprisingly showed high levels of distrust; 44% of respondents reported they distrust Republicans in Congress, with 55% distrusting Democrats in Congress. But the rift runs beyond elected officials with only 37% of respondents trusting “people who voted for Hillary Clinton” and 37% trusting “people who voted for Donald Trump.”
Scoring rock-bottom is the media, with only 20% reporting they trust them, followed by the Hollywood industry with only 16%.
The survey shows that 45% of all respondents distrust “those who voted for Hillary Clinton for President” and 39% distrust “those who voted for Donald Trump for President.” However, when broken out by party affiliation, the divide is extreme with 72% of self-identified Republicans distrusting those who voted for Clinton, and 70% of Democrats distrusting those who voted for Trump.
Trend lines are leaning toward increasing skepticism and distrust of what were once respected institutions as we witness a distinct tribalism becoming the new norm in American politics.
The poll was conducted in conjunction with the University of Delaware’s National Agenda speaker series. Hosted by the CPC, the seventh annual series brings nationally known speakers to campus. This year’s theme, “As We Stand | Divided,” explores religious, political, cultural and other divides in the United States. The series continues on November 1 with "Political Divides: Past and Present," featuring former Michigan Congressman David Bonior and former Delaware Governor and Congressman Mike Castle. Visit cpc.udel.edu/nationalagenda for more information. The fall speaker series is free and open to the community and takes place at the historic Mitchell Hall on the University of Delaware's Newark campus. It is made possible with support from the University of Delaware Office of the Provost.
