As it turns out, and contrary to widely held beliefs, Republicans overall are generally more trusting of government than Democrats are.

These figures from Pew, hereunder, show the average percent of people saying they always or most of the time trust the government in Washington to do what is right across surveys conducted over the course of several administrations.
(The Kennedy/Johnson and Nixon/Ford administrations are combined because relatively few surveys were conducted during those periods.)

Who would have thought?
