(FreedomBeacon.com)- According to a poll conducted in December, a majority of respondents believe “democracy” is at risk of “extinction.”
The survey, conducted by Schoen Cooperman Research was released shortly after President Biden delivered his vicious, defamatory, fearmongering speech on “voting rights” in Georgia.
About 26 percent of respondents said “democracy” will be just fine and its future is secure. But 51 percent think “democracy” is in danger of extinction while 23 percent have no idea.
Young people (18-29) are especially uncertain about the future of “democracy,” with only 21 percent believing it was safe.
It would be interesting to know if those polled were provided with a specific definition of what the pollsters meant by “democracy.”
While the majority of respondents (54 percent) said they believe Joe Biden was the legitimate winner of the 2020 election, that percentage is still down ten points from where it was in April of 2021.
A full 47 percent of respondents believe the 2020 election did have actual instances of fraud that affected the election results.
The vast majority of respondents (85 percent) said they were concerned about the rise of political extremism in the United States. But voters were split on precisely what they mean by “political extremism.” Twenty-one percent of respondents fear “right-wing extremism” while 23 percent fear “left-wing extremism.” Apparently, everybody else just fears extremism in general.
Another 80 percent of respondents said it was more important for lawmakers to work together to solve the nation’s problems than stick to their ideological beliefs.
Pollster Carly Cooperman believes that her survey shows that Americans are losing faith in “democracy,” elections, and our institutions.
After spending a solid year accusing one side of “treason” for questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 election, just Tuesday during his press conference, President Joe Biden suggested the midterm elections would not be legitimate unless Congress passed their stupid election takeover legislation.
When Americans are lied to and gaslit on a daily basis – whether on COVID or elections or so-called “threats to democracy” – how can anyone not lose faith?
