NPR Poll

In this election year, a new NPR-Kaiser-Kennedy School Poll finds that Americans distrust government at all levels. They distrust the federal government the most, but they also want it to do more. NPR's Pam Fessler explores what's behind this distrust, and she visits a conference of state legislators, who plan to combat distrust with an education campaign in the schools to explain what they really do.
