How much do you trust Minnesota institutions?

MPR host Tom Weber will lead a conversation about how much Minnesotans trust two different and essential institutions: The police and the media. Our Ground Level survey results show that only 43 percent of Minnesotans think the media is doing the right thing all or most of the time. A far higher percentage of Minnesotans trust the police – 76 percent – but where residents live and how much money they make can affect how much trust they have in law enforcement.
