It’s hard to avoid all the political news right now!
Every time you turn on the TV or read the news, there’s a new story about one of our five presidential candidates.
What the polls reveal
About a week ago I saw a poll released that compared Hillary Clinton’s Competence vs. her Trustworthiness. I was quite intrigued, because after all, one might think that competence has something to do with being able to trust someone, right?
The poll showed that approximately seventy five percent of Americans believed Hillary is competent to be commander in chief. However only about forty percent believed she is trustworthy. Interesting! I wish I could remember the news station I saw this on so I could cite this, but I hadn’t had my coffee yet. You know how that goes.
While the exact numbers aren’t extremely important, the concept is. This poll shows that people believe Hillary can get the job done, but don’t necessarily believe what she says. When thinking about that, what would you prefer from your leader? Or what if we didn’t have to make that choice?
