Lee Hamilton: Now more than ever, we must trust, but also verify

Email

Of all the numbers thrown at us over the course of last year, one stands out for me. I fervently hope we can avoid repeating it this year.

That number is 12. It’s the percentage of Americans in a December Quinnipiac poll who said they trust the government in Washington to do what is right most or all of the time.

It’s a depressingly small number and The poll’s message is clear: our society is in the midst of a crisis in trust.
