June 27, 2019: Twenty-six percent (26%) of voters nationwide believe America’s political leaders respect the voters they are supposed to represent. A ScottRasmussen.com survey found that 67% say voters get no such respect while 7% aren’t sure.

That’s a problem because voters see such respect as key to a healthy political system — 76% say it’s very important.

Voters under 35 are less skeptical about politicians than their elders. Thirty-eight percent (38%) of these younger voters believe political leaders show respect. Just 18% of senior citizens agree.

These results are consistent with data showing that just 27% believe the federal government primarily serves the interests of the American people. More than twice as many — 60%  —believe it primarily looks out for its own interests.
