06/12/13 Fox News Poll: National Leadership – Is This the Best We Can Do?

Really?  This is the best we can do?

That’s how Americans feel about the country’s political leaders, according to a just-released Fox News poll.

Fully 71 percent of voters wonder if America’s political class is comprised of the best people we can find to lead our country.  That’s more than three times as many as feel “confident and proud of the people serving” (23 percent).

Large majorities of Republicans (85 percent) and independents (77 percent) along with over half of Democrats (56 percent) doubt that current leaders are the cream of the crop.

Voters under the age of 30 are more inclined to feel confident and proud (31 percent) than those over the age of 65 (22 percent).

Even among voters who say they have trust and confidence in the federal government, 52 percent wonder if these leaders are the best the country has.
