60 Prozent der Deutschen finden, ihre Stimme zähle in der Politik nicht. 64 Prozent meinen, die Regierung würden selten oder nie in ihrem Interesse handeln. Das sind zwei Ergebnisse des “Democracy Perception Index” der dänischen Alliance of Democracies Foundation.
The Democracy Perception Index (DPI) is a research project conducted by Dalia Research, in collaboration with the Alliance of Democracies and Rasmussen Global, to measure citizens’ trust in government. The DPI survey data ranks countries on how effectively they are perceived to be delivering core democratic benefits in the eyes of their citizens, including:
1) Political Voice: Sense of participation in politics
2) Public Interest: Trust that government is working for the people
3) Free Speech: Freedom to express opinions
4) Information: Access to balanced and neutral information
The DPI is the largest single survey conducted at once: covering 125,000 respondents for nationally representative results across 50 countries, from June 6th to June 18th, 2018. This represents over 75% of the world’s population and 75% of the world’s GDP.
Hier die Ergebnisse für Deutschland:
1) Do you feel that the voice of people like you matters in politics? 60% say “Never” or “Rarely”
2) Do you feel that your government is acting in your interest? 64% say “Never” or “Rarely”
3) Do you feel free to share your opinion on political issues in public even if most other people disagree with you? 45% say “Never” or “Rarely”
4) Do you feel like the news you read or watch gives you balanced and neutral information? 49% say “Never” or “Rarely”
