Abstract

In this project, I analyze levels of trust among evangelical Protestants. I suspect that while evangelicals in the U.S. have higher interpersonal trust, they distrust the government more than nonevangelicals for a variety of reasons. This study draws upon the data of the National Election Survey 2004, and explores the political function of religion.
