In the “no surprise” category, a Gallup survey shows Illinois Residents Least Confident in Their State Government. Only 25% of Illinoisans are confident in state government compared to 81% in North Dakota.

One in four Illinois residents are confident in their state government, the lowest among the 50 states by a significant margin. Rhode Island (33%) and Connecticut (39%) join Illinois as states with less than 40% government confidence. North Dakota residents are the most trusting; 81% say they are confident in their state government.

The only mystery here is how 25% actually have confidence.
