Poll: Nearly three-quarters of voters see democracy in the U.S. as a threat

This is the opinion of an overwhelming majority of Americans, regardless of party preference

Nearly three-quarters of U.S. voters believe democracy in the country is threatened in the wake of the deadly attack on the Capitol.

These are the results of a new poll conducted by Quinnipiac University.

A national poll of registered voters found that 77 percent of Republicans and 76 percent of Democrats believe democracy is threatened.

The percentage of independents who share this view is slightly lower at 70 percent.

A majority of voters, 56 percent, believe President Donald Trump is responsible for last week’s storming of the Capitol.

Meanwhile, 42 percent do not hold him responsible.

On the eve of President-elect Joe Biden taking office, only 31 percent of voters think he can unify the country.

A majority, 56 percent, expect the current partisan divide to continue. However, 14 percent could not give a definite answer.
