Item: Conservatives lose trust in science, study shows: Better educated change the most/Los Angeles Times
More Info: A study released Thursday in the American Sociological Review concludes that trust in science among conservatives and frequent churchgoers has declined precipitously since 1974, when a national survey first asked people how much confidence they had in the scientific community. At that time, conservatives had the highest level of trust in scientists. Confidence in scientists has declined the most among the most educated conservatives.
Question: Is science ever influenced by politics?
