Skip to comments.Poll: Carter most trusted politician; Matt Lauer least trusted network newsie
Posted on 05/07/2013 12:04:00 PM PDT by seanmerc
Former President Jimmy Carter stands head and shoulders above other American politicians -- including President Obama -- in a new Reader's Digest poll of the 100 most trusted people in America that also suggests the problems dogging "Today Show" co-host Matt Lauer have nicked his integrity.
The new poll, provided to Secrets, proves that Washington has fallen out of favor in America. The four most trusted Americans are in show business. No. 1 is Tom Hanks, followed by Sandra Bullock, Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep.
The first Washingtonian on the list is first lady Michelle Obama at No. 19. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright lands at 23, followed by Carter at 24. President Obama landed the No. 65 spot, behind Hillary Clinton, who was No. 51.

Ok what did I miss?
What did Matt Lauer do while I was busy for the last couple of weeks?
Any poll that places Carter at the top of the list for most trusted anything is a horribly skewed poll.
Carter? This country is worse off than I even thought.
How many of the people polled even know Carter was president?
Once upon a time Walter Cronkite was the most trusted man in the US. Thing is, he was hiding his inner communist one-world-government self.
GIVE ME A BREAK? Carter number One!! They must not remember or lived through the 70’s or remember Billy or Mamma Carter.
Maybe people feel he’s just too naive and stupid to be a liar.
Jimmy Carter! I wouldn’t trust that SOB as far as I could throw him.
It’s a Reader’s Digest poll. You know, Reader’s Digest is for people without the attention span to read to whole book.
Bingo. Holy crap we are screwed.
It seems as though the poll is asking for candidates alive today. That makes a little more sense.
LOL. Well put.
Awkward? Hmm not he adjective I would use, Brilliant, Hilarious, side splitting, but not awkward.
Ditto. Carter is a small minded, vindictive idiot. I wouldn’t trust him to scrub my hubcaps.
Before that gets pulled I concur! I will add WTF!?
.. except that Carter's been dead from the neck up for decades.
Invite list to Lucifer’s Leftist Luau in Hell.
That was not an “oopsie” it was a heart felt comment!
” Lucifers Leftist Luau in Hell.”
Credit where credit’s due - he was a tiger managing the WH tennis court schedule.
Low information readers.
did they ask people who actually lived during Carters term?
Heaven forbid we'd run the risk of a Puritan coronary ! ;^)
Compared to Obambi? Carter was just a dumbass fool. Obama is WILLFULLY out to destroy the country.
Remember Groucho Marx’s comment about declining to join any club willing to admit him?
In the same fashion, this reinforces my desire not to associate with any pollster that would lump me with such lame-brains. My country has existed for centuries without needing pollsters, my religion for millennia and this earth for eons.
As far as I am concerned, majority opinion just gives you company on the road to ruin!
LMAO @ all of it.
I like celebrations and I look forward to the fair and lawful public hangings of the criminal morons that infest this once great country.
HEY! It's a good bathroom mag.
Catarrh #1! We’re doomed!
Facepalm of the Year©
I found Richard Nixon to be more trustworthy than the peanut farmer.
Bill Clinton did not appear so he is untrusted. Bush was maligned in the press so much he did not make it. Liberals hate Reagan. Carter, time wounds all heals.
Carter was a Fraud like OBAMA...but most Presidents are ...How many good ones in the last 100 years???
I lived the Carter years. I wouldn’t trust him with my 6’ Rabbit!
His admin ruined many a business, including mine!
Who wouldn't trust a kindly face like that?
This poll must have been taken in a dementia ward in Miami. These people are out of their gourds.
They must have been thinking about Brother Billy.
Who reads Readers Digest?
It’s pretty much died out and just seen at dental offices or clinics. After their attempt to make global warming “real” back ten years ago...I stopped reading. It was in bankruptcy issues back around 2010. I suspect they barely survive now.
Indeed, what did I miss?
Ten years ago I used to feel confident there were people around me who listened to Rush, loved Reagan, understood what frauds Carter and Hillary and Bubba were (are), etc., etc. Now I’m not so sure. When did all the stupidity creep in? What prompted it? Any ideas?
How the American public can place so much trust in Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington, two actors whom they have never met and really know precious little about aside from their onscreen characters, is quite troubling.
But, Carter can be trusted to bow down to communist dictators and terrorist nation states. Lauer can be trusted to out-feminize all of the ladies in news media.
This comes from the same crowd that picked THE FOREIGNER and GORE for the NOBLE PEACE PRIZE.
Changed his name to Matt Wower...more like Brokaw would say it.
People probably saw the whitewash he got in Argo and assumed everything that happened was beyond his control.
All that I can say is the NEA union thugs that read Reader’s Digest these days love them some imbecilic communist dufus... the second worst president in modern History.
When asked about her son jimmuh... momma carter said, “Billy was always the smarter of the two”.
