CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A recent Gallup poll shows that 76 percent of Wyoming residents have a great deal or fair amount of trust in their state government.

The percentage is the second-highest among states.

Only North Dakota, at 77 percent had a higher ranking than Wyoming.

The poll's results are based on interviews with at least 600 residents in every state and were conducted between June and December 2013.

Gov. Matt Mead commented that the poll results are a compliment to those in state government and to the Legislature. He says having a citizen Legislature is one of the keys to good state government.
