だが, while this may be a challenging moment, the longer-term decline in trust in America — and the institutions that compose it — is not new.
We are in an era of declining trust in institutions — all institutions — that were once considered the bedrock of American society.
Take the Supreme Court

, according to Gallup
. Twenty years later that number is at just
40% — and almost certainly will go lower in the wake of the Roe ruling
