How ‘Game of Thrones’ and the politics of ‘The Hobbit’ are shaping our politics
A new report by the Pew Research Center says that President Trump’s presidency has been the worst for the country in the past three decades.
The study found that while the country is experiencing an unprecedented number of political polarizations, the most troubling aspect of the situation is that “Americans increasingly believe the government is more powerful than they are.”
“This is a deeply troubling development,” the report said.
“It suggests that Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with their political systems, with their leaders, and with the direction of our country.
It is particularly worrisome in light of the Trump administration’s continued attacks on the media, the courts, and critical institutions, including the Justice Department, as part of its efforts to undermine the legitimacy of democratic institutions.”
The report is based on a survey of 2,006 adults from April through June of this year.
The margin of error for the survey was plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
