Two-thirds of Americans worry US democracy is on verge of collapse

Washington, Sep 2 (Prensa Latina) Two-thirds of Americans believe the nation's democracy is in danger of collapse, according to a recent poll that finds a growing share feel that way and party affiliation is not a factor.

The Quinnipiac University Poll issued earlier this week found Americans, 67% to 29%, felt democracy was on the brink, a 9-point increase from a similar poll in January that registered a 58%-37% split.

Pollsters found that 69% of GOPers and 69% of Democrats feared the country´s democracy was in danger of collapse, and 66% of independents felt that way. At least 60% of people in every age group were worried about democracy’s future.

“In a rare moment of agreement, Americans coalesce around an ominous concern. Democracy, the nation’s bedrock, is in peril,” said Quinnipac University polling analyst Tim Malloy.

The findings were published shortly before President Biden delivered a prime-time speech about the “soul” of America. He said former President Donald Trump and the Make America Great Again movement are a threat to the nation’s rule of law, global standing and civil rights.
