Viewing Political Corruption More Broadly

by Lee H. Hamilton

Earlier this year, veteran political writer Thomas Edsall reported an eyebrow-raising fact about Americans’ views toward government. Polling by Gallup, he noted, found that the proportion of Americans who believed that corruption is “widespread” in government had risen from 59% in 2006 to 79% in 2013. “In other words,” Edsall wrote, “we were cynical already, but now we’re in overdrive.”
