True story... I actually took the liberty of color coding this chart to illustrate just how crappy the blue states are when it comes to trust. The top ranked blue state is 17th place New Jersey, AND it's governor is a Republican (Chris Christie) embroiled in a trust-violating scandal (Bridgegate).
Liberals will look at this and see contradiction, because they're not very smart. In reality the red state governments receive more trust probably because they are LESS intrusive instead of MORE in the lives of the people in those states.
A government that governs less governs best.
