According to the survey, the majority of respondents questioned - 38.4 percent - do not trust in any political force, 35.8 percent trust in the authorities, 17.4 percent trust in the opposition.
Most supporters of the government are people aged 25-44, but the opposition - 45-64. Among the politicians mostly enjoying trust is President
Mikhail Saakashvili (46.5 percent), followed by one of the leaders of the Alliance of Georgia and former ombudsman Sozar Subari (42.9 percent), the leader of the Christian Democrats George Targamadze (39.7 percent), Labor Party leader Shalva Natelashvili (38,0 percent) and Irakli Alasania (37.9 percent).
