The 2016 election is approaching and the Presidential candidates are quickly embedding themselves into our everyday lives. The 24-hour news cycle combined with unending social media outlets track each candidates move and their exposure to voters has never been more widespread. As each voter evaluates each candidate’s agenda, experience and political affiliation, the time comes to ask the ultimate question before casting your ballot next November:
“Can I trust this man or woman with my vote?”
In a recent Gallup Poll the public was asked if they trusted their elected representatives and were given the option to choose the following answers:
a. Just about always
b. Most of the time
c. Only Sometimes
The results, people reported they trusted their representatives (Most of the time/Just about always) only 19% of the time and (Only Sometimes/Never) 81% of the time. This is a serious issue.
At Wyngspan, The Trust Network, we offer the ability to create, foster and build trust between consumers and businesses. Although we can’t do the same for the relationship between the public and their elected representatives, we wanted to do our part to demystify why our participants trust their chosen candidates. WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Please click the picture of the candidate you trust most below and give us a short explanation of why you trust that candidate. Our intention is to give all participants the analyzed results and provide an article to our press connection for nationwide exposure. Take the opportunity now to have your voice heard and potentially be chosen as a person whose quote will be included in the article representing the public’s voice of your chosen candidate.
