    Percentages Americans Trust: Congress 3%, Business Leaders %7, Bush 24%, Courts 29%

    U.S. residents don't trust leaders

    UTICA, N.Y., May 25 (UPI) -- A Zogby Interactive poll finds that U.S. voters are more distrustful than ever of political and corporate leaders.

    Only 3 percent believe Congress is trustworthy; 7 percent think business leaders are; 24 percent say President George W. Bush can be trusted; and 29 percent trust the courts.

    The poll was commissioned by Jim Lichtman, an ethics specialist whose latest book is "What Do You Stand For?"

    Three out of four respondents said they trust politicians less than they did five years ago.

    Seventy-five percent of those polled said their friends, neighbors and co-workers are trustworthy, and an overwhelming majority -- 97 percent -- described themselves as trustworthy.

    "Three out of four respondents said they trust politicians less than they did five years ago."

    I wonder what happen 5 years ago that could make people not trust their government? Throw in the 42+% that believe everything told to them, from this government, is a lie. The winds of change are-a-comming.
