Confidence in politicians is at an all-time low. The public does not feel represented by our country’s leaders and feel that they make decisions that show they don’t understand what it’s like to live an ordinary life outside of politics. I think this is a democratic crisis and politicians need to do something about it.
As a leader, you are responsible for gaining the support of the people behind you. You have to show that you are worthy of their trust and you have to take the lead to show that you have their best interests in mind. As a politician, it is impossible to make everyone happy, but a responsible politician must be responsive to public sentiment.
