    A new survey on the most trusted people in America finds actors taking the top three spots: Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock and Denzel Washington. The first politician to appear on the list is former President Jimmy Carter, who comes in at number 24.



    Carter, 88, often referred to as the most successful ex-president in American history, has earned bipartisan praise since leaving office for his work on behalf of various humanitarian causes.

    During his successful 1976 presidential campaign, Carter won over a majority of American voters with his “Trust Me” campaign slogan.

    The surveyed asked 1,000 participants who they trusted the most and was conducted by The Wagner Group for Readers Digest.

    President Obama made the list as well but came in at number 65.

    According to the list, Obama was edged out by none other than Adam Sandler, named the 64th most trusted person in America.

    No other former president made the list, though Hillary Clinton, a potential 2016 candidate, came in at number 51....snip~

    Jimmy Carter named most trusted U.S. politician in new poll

    .....who would have ever thought that. Carter, AKA.....Jimmy Mac!

    Even Beat Obama out on that one. Lookie Jimmy.....Stylin and Profilin!!!!!
    The very fact that Americans consider people who fake it for a living to be the most trustworthy is a pretty sad commentary on the intellectual capacity and connection to reality that the average American in 2013 seems to have.

    What an embarrassment.

    Not everyone takes up painting dogs and bath tub scenes after their public service. Some people engage in massively successful humanitarian causes, which make a real difference in the lives of millions. Such phonies!

    Perhaps, but I'd still trust him over any politician.

    Wasn't that everybody on the list? Actors and politicians...

    Problem is, who are you going to get that enough people have heard of? I trust my Dad, but for most people he'd elicit a "who's that."

    I'm not here to do your homework for you.

    I provided you with abundant material. Look it up.

    If the Palestinians want to avoid being "oppressed," then they merely need to stop acting the part pf murderous savages. Myself, being of an old fashioned bent am disinclined to encourage anyone to negotiate with people who celebrate when infants and children are stabbed to death, or who launch missiles at schools. Top be honest, I think that such people really ought to be suppressed, especially in light of the fact that everytime someone foolishly does negotiate with them, they find that an incentive to greater, more imaginative forms of murder.

    Carter was a horrible pres and an even worse X pres. He has no class at all and proved that with his constant sniping at rep presidents.

    Clearly, reading comprehension isn't your strong suit. I said "consider the most trustworthy people who fake it for a living". My comment had nothing to do with Jimmy Carter and everything to do with the litany of actors whom Americans consider most trustworthy.

    Further, your comments about President Bush simply compound your ignorance of the man and the work he does out of the spotlight. From your comments, one has to assume you were one of the 1,000 people polled in this survey.

    I agree that Jimmy Carter was a man of high morals, but you are delusional about Obama.

    That's fair enough. I do remember a time when journalists and news anchors, like Walter Cronkite and Edward R. Murrow were the most trusted people. Shows how far that profession has fallen.
