Summary:
No one is left unscarred by the #covid19 pandemic when it comes to public approval trends for the major social stakeholders in Ireland: Source: Core Research. Broadly-speaking, the above is expected, although Core Research report contains one glaring omission: it does not survey public attitudes to media/press. Worse, the three improving stakeholder groups are also the three least impacted: own employer, citizens and large companies. Meanwhile, approval of the government is still nosediving. Covid pandemic is certainly testing Irish (and other countries') key institutional frameworks.

Covid pandemic is certainly testing Irish (and other countries') key institutional frameworks. The fallout from these tests is going to be long-lasting and deep. We went into the pandemic with huge deficits of trust in key institutions of our societies. And we are becoming more polarized and less enthusiastic in our support for these institutions since then.
