Rasmussen: GOP Considered More Trustworthy Than Dems

Wednesday, 22 May 2013 12:08 PM

By Courtney Coren

Voters give Republicans an edge over Democrats on ethics and trust when it comes to handling controversies on the IRS, the Benghazi attacks, and the Justice Department seizure of Associated Press phone records.

According to a survey of 1,000 likely voters by Rasmussen Reports, 39 percent say they trust Republicans more in the areas of ethics and corruption, compared to 37 percent who say Democrats are more trustworthy. Twenty-four percent said they are not sure which party was more trustworthy.

"This marks a big shift from March when Democrats held an eight-point trust advantage over the GOP, 42 percent to 34 percent," Scott Rasmussen said. "The newest finding is the highest level of confidence in Republicans and the lowest level for Democrats since October.

"With growing questions about Benghazi and actions taken by the Internal Revenue Service and the Justice Department, Democrats' noticeable edge over Republicans in voter trust in the area of government ethics and corruption has disappeared," Rasmussen added.
