As we move into 2014, a new poll finds that a whopping 70 percent of Americans have absolutely “no faith” in government to make progress on key issues.

The Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey found that 7 in 10 voters do not have any confidence in the government “to make progress on the important problems and issues facing the country in 2014.”

The poll also indicates that even fewer, only one in twenty Americans, believe that the current system of government requires no changes.

Drilling down into exact numbers, half of those polled said that said the government requires either “a lot of changes” or “a complete overhaul”.

Respondents cited jobs and the economy, and the nation’s debt and deficit spending as key issues which they have no faith in the government to improve. On the issue of national debt, 65 percent say they have no confidence in the government’s ability to fix it.

Unsurprisingly, considering the utter disaster that is Obamacare, the top issue cited by the public in the poll is healthcare reform.
