The risk of an Ebola pandemic is on everyone’s mind these days, even if you don’t worry much about it. But we wanted to know just how concerned you were and whether you thought the government was doing enough to protect us. So in our most recent online poll we asked that question. As you can see, a big chunk of you, more than seven of 10, said you’re not only worried about the disease, but also that the government wasn’t taking enough precautions.
Sadly, many polls besides ours indicate Americans are losing confidence in the decision-making process of our government in general and the president Obama in particular.
