Will the Results of the Democratic Primaries Hinge on the Question: Can there be Leadership, without Trust?Quicklink submitted By Hugh Campbell Permalink
The linked article’s concluding paragraph starts with the following sentence: If Americans do not trust their leader, then there is no leadership.
A comparison of the two front-runners in the Democratic primaries follows:
A July 2015 Quinnipiac University Poll focusing on Colorado, Iowa and Virginia voters reported that one of the two cannot be trusted by: 62 percent of Colorado voters, 59 % in Iowa, and 55 % in Virginia, while the other 24 percent in Colorado, 20 % of Iowans, and 17 % of Virginians.
On consistency the most distrusted is a notorious flip flopper, while the least distrusted one’s 1992 address to Congress could easily be a campaign speech in 2015.
Since Americans love accountability, which one of the two frontrunners in the Democratic primaries will reign in the 1 percent and to bring accountability to American capitalism?
