A matter of trust

An Essential Research survey of 1,041 respondents was conducted online from the 2nd to 5th September 2016 and, in theory, with a sample of this size there is 95 per cent certainty that the results are within 3 percentage points of what they would be if the entire population had been polled.

This is part of what this particular survey found:

40% don’t trust religious organisations

49% don’t trust political parties;
35% of people don’t trust either the federal parliament or state parliaments; and

24% don’t trust local government.

Total trust has fallen since October 2015 by:

-4% for religious organisations;
-2% for political parties;
-6% for federal parliament and state parliaments; and
-4% for local government.

It would appear that the old first and second estates may have well and truly fallen into disrepute with the Australian populace.
