In 2020, traditional media sources (television, newspaper, radio) are still the preferred media when getting news and information. New Mexico residents are most likely to say television is their primary news source, followed by newspaper and radio news.
In 2011 that newspaper ranked as the second most accessed information source in New Mexico. Fast forward to 2020, it dropped to fourth out of six sources, behind internet news sites and radio.
When it comes to who New Mexico residents trust, blood is thicker than water.
We're not able to choose our family but we sure do trust them.
Residents were asked to rate the trustworthiness of various people using a five-point scale where five is completely trust and one is completely distrust.
The large majority (76%) of New Mexicans view their family members or relatives as being trustworthy. Of this group, women were more likely to trust family members and relatives (81%) then men (61%).
Albuquerque, NM. – New Mexico residents trust police officers, a trend that has been building since 2014 and the aftermath of isolated incidents throughout the state that created a crisis of confidence in the profession. According to the 2020 Garrity Perception Survey (GPS), conducted in January 2020, 58 percent of residents trust police officers, 22 percent are undecided and only 18 percent distrust police officers. Compared to the fifteen professions identified in the annual survey, Police Officers are the fifth most trusted people/profession.
In the midst of a crisis, who we trust and what information they share with us will shape our mindset, approach and response to the crisis.
