Just 28 percent of voters in Illinois have trust in their state's government -- by far the lowest number in the United States.
The scandal-plagued state -- four of its last seven governors have wound up in jail -- ranks the lowest in trust in government by 12 points, according to a new Gallup poll. The next least-trusting citizens are in another state known for its scandals, Rhode Island, and Maine (40 percent each).
