The horrors! Only half of you have faith in DEMOCRACY!

Just 51% of Americans said they have faith in the country’s democracy, and 37% say they have lost faith in democracy, according to a new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll conducted in late October.

Why it matters: It suggests that recent political turmoil has caused people to doubt the very foundation of American society, particularly leading up to election day.

Democracy is to the foundation of American society what concrete is to a hummingbird’s menu. That’s why “hummingbird” “democracy” appears exactly zero times in the Constitution or other Founding Documents. The Men of 1776 understood that democracy was quite likely to lead to the turmoil witnessed today.
