Almost every third voter (32 percent) has seen their trust in the government diminished since parliament voted in favour of the introduction of a controversial new signals intelligence law.

The majority of respondents, 55 percent, said their trust in the government had not been affected by the FRA issue.

Polling agency Sifo surveyed a total of 1,000 people from August 13 to 19.
