Because it is easy and quite human for dected and non-elected officials to see the ways in which p~lblicdistrust reRects both ignorance of the facts and misunderstanding of the constraints on decisionmaking, the increased distrust vczters have far politicians and bureaucrats generates increased distrust among politiicans and bureaucrats for the public (Sirnendinger, 1998; Pew Research Center, 1998b). In addition, because much of the pubjic now equates effective leadership with the presence of good times and no longer assigns much weight to the connection traditionauj~made between personal character and effective leadership, there is a widespread inclination tc> see pc~fiticians primarily as political technicians (MaiseX, 1998; Mrattenberg, 19911.

As a final example, less than two years after the end of World W r 11, George Gallup wrote that "the public sickns and trrrns its head away from the very thought of politics" m d "would rather see their children work as street sweepers than besmirch themselves in politics" (Wilst~n,1951, p. 242). Ncrr does history provide the only testimony to the fact that distrust in American democracy is a comptex problem, not a simple one. A recent &W Research Center survey (1998a) that compares distrust in the United States and stable Western E~lroyeandemocracies reveals some striEng similarities, strongly suggesting that stable democratic orders invariably blend elements of trust and distrust, The character and consequences of public trust ir-t American democracy thus pose a p-~lzzle that we are a long way fmm solving (Nye and Zelikt~w,1997).
