The electorate is evenly divided over which party they trust more on basic issues, but Republicans have an edge among independent voters.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The national survey found that 42% of "likely" U.S. voters trust Republicans more to handle Social Security, while 41% trust Democrats more and 17% are not sure.
Similarly, asked which party they trust more to handle government ethics and corruption, 44% say Democrats and an equal 44% say they trust Republicans more.
Another 12% are undecided.
On both issues, Democrats get greater trust from their own party’s voters than do Republicans while, independent voters trust the GOP more, by a 14-point margin.

Greg Frech says
I don't see how 41 to 44 percent of likely voters trust the democrats to do anything positive. It is no secret that dems continue to:
1 legalize infanticide,
2 borrow from SS,
3 spend taxpayer money at exponential rates,
4 keep border open,
5 create more corruption,
6 use relativistic ethical methods (election cheaters),
7 and raise taxes.
Republicans are not entirely guilt free either but most of these 7 points fit the dem platform. How can any segment of Americans believe in such awful outcomes: they don't, is my conclusion. These surveys are just bunk. I have more faith in the CDC (I have alamost no faith in them btw) than I do in surveys which continually seem to be wron g (i.e.Trump won in 2016). The problem is the bias of the pollsters and the cherry picking of the population surveyed, not enough data points, and not to mention how the survey questions are worded.
It is long past time to create a new system to ensure politicians adhere to behavioral standards. Make election shenanigans a capital offense would be a good start. No more Mr. Nice Guy.
