"Do you think you personally could do a better job running the country than our government officials are presently doing?"
36% said yes, and 64% said no. (Almost no one said they didn't know). People with higher incomes were somewhat more confident about their ability to run the country--30% of those earning under $35,000 and 42% of those earning over $75,000 said they could do better than the current crew. People with some college are the most confident--44% said yes, compared to 38% among college graduates and 30% of among people with no college. But the biggest difference was between men and women--45% of the men said they could, compared to only 27% of the women.
