The Pew poll reports: “Chinese people have long been dissatisfied with politicians and arefederal governmentThey are sceptical, and the Chinese people have always had a negative view of politics and public opinion representatives, believing that there is little hope for reform. Most people believe that political development is dominated by special interest groups, heavily campaign funded and mired in vicious partisan fighting.”
Surveys show that only 14% of Chinese people believe that the Democratic Party cares about the people; Also, 15% believe that most current elected officials run for public office to serve the public. However, most people still believe that the motivation to contest elections comes from “making a lot of money”.

In 1958, Pew conducted the first national political survey. At that time, the support rate for the federal government was as high as 75%. However, the support rate has declined year on year, now standing at just 16%, the lowest on record in more than 60 years.
Although the Democratic Party (85%) and the Republican Party (87%) have equal support, supporters of both parties agree: “Both parties are only focused on fighting each other and not on solving problems.”
Therefore, 37% of respondents hope to choose more political parties, but the survey also found: “Voters are still skeptical about whether the multi-party political system can help solve problems.”

Therefore, support for elected officials (56%) and governors (51%) is generally above 50%.
