Australians' trust in politicians hits two-decade low

    Description

    Adversarial politics has eaten away at Australians' trust in democracy, with more and more voters breaking away from the major parties, a survey has revealed.

    Despite two decades of economic growth, Professor Mark Evans of the University of Canberra Institute for Governance and Public Analysis said Australians' trust in government and politicians are now at their lowest levels since 1993 – and Aussies' loathing of political "blood sports" is to blame.
