EAST LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Michigan State University has completed its latest State of the State survey, which gauges the amount of trust that citizens have in their government, among other things. Charles Ballard, with the MSU Institute for Public Policy and Social Research, says the survey found that people have much more trust in their local governments than they do in state or federal government, and trust in state government is going down. He says that could be because of an increase in partisan gridlock. 

Ballard added that people traditionally do trust their local governments more, as they can actually relate to the individuals who serve in those bodies.
