Americans' Confidence In Higher Education Has Collapsed

Beginning with the Moral Panic of 2015-2016, woke leftists have transformed every single institution -- even the ones they didn't have majority control over -- into very stupid, very dishonest propaganda organizations for the left wing of the Democrat Party (which is really just "the Democrat Party" now, as it's all left wing).

They have destroyed every single institution, including corporation, including the military, diverting them from their actual missions and perverting them to become psyops disinformation groups.

Americans are finally waking up and realizing this.

These aren't your daddy's institutions any more.

Gallup:

Americans' Confidence in Higher Education Down Sharply


* 36% have "a great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in higher education

* Confidence down from 48% in 2018 and 57% in 2015

* All major subgroups less confident, with Republicans dropping the most

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' confidence in higher education has fallen to 36%, sharply lower than in two prior readings in 2015 (57%) and 2018 (48%). In addition to the 17% of U.S. adults who have "a great deal" and 19% "quite a lot" of confidence, 40% have "some" and 22% "very little" confidence.

The latest decline in the public's trust in higher education is from a June 1-22 Gallup poll that also found confidence in 16 other institutions has been waning in recent years. Many of these entities, which are tracked more often than higher education, are now also at or near their lowest points in confidence. Although diminished, higher education ranks fourth in confidence among the 17 institutions measured, with small business, the military and the police in the top three spots.

Small business -- not major corporations.

In 2015, majorities of Americans in all key subgroups expressed confidence in higher education, with one exception -- independents (48%). By 2018, though, confidence had fallen across all groups, with the largest drop, 17 percentage points, among Republicans. In the latest measure, confidence once again fell across the board, but Republicans' sank the most -- 20 points to 19%, the lowest of any group. Confidence among adults without a college degree and those aged 55 and older dropped nearly as much as Republicans' since 2018.

Even though all subgroups show declining confidence in higher education, significant gaps persist among political, educational, gender and age subgroups. Notably, the only key subgroup with majority-level confidence in higher education is Democrats (59%).

Every institution has taken its reserves of trust -- built up painstakingly over decades, sometimes centuries -- and closed their accounts in 2015-2016 to take their all of their professional regard and social capital to spend it all madly on Getting Trump and Teaching the Lower Orders Who Runs Bartertown.

And now it's all gone. All of it. Every last drop of it.

They have pissed away their respect and prestige on short-term political goals, which no sane person would do. But in 2015-2016, almost the entire (so-called) professional class had a mental breakdown, which went unnoticed because they all suffered it, including their psychiatrists. They all collectively decided that going mad was the only sane response to... the country electing a man they didn't vote for.

So they killed every institution, flayed the skin off them, put on that skin as a skin-suit, and went around demanding the respect that the institutions they destroyed formerly commanded.

And now we see Jake Tapper and Anderson Cooper having spastic meltdown every single night demanding to know, "Why doesn't the public believe us any more? What's wrong with them?"
