Here's today's Quinnipiac Poll where 58% of voters believe that


the democracy is in grave danger of falling. Here's an excerpt:
_______________________________________
FOR RELEASE: JANUARY 12, 2022
POLITICAL INSTABILITY NOT U.S. ADVERSARIES, SEEN AS BIGGER THREAT,
QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY NATIONAL POLL FINDS;
NEARLY 6 IN 10 THINK NATION’S DEMOCRACY IS IN DANGER OF COLLAPSE
In a sharply divided country, Americans agree on this: the bigger danger to the United States comes from
within. Seventy-six percent say they think political instability within the country is a bigger danger to the United
States compared to the 19 percent who think other countries that are adversaries of the United States are the
bigger danger, according to a Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pea-ack) University national poll of adults released today.
Democrats say 83 – 13 percent, independents say 78 – 19 percent, and Republicans say 66 – 29 percent
that political instability in the U.S. is the bigger danger.
A majority of Americans, 58 – 37 percent, think the nation’s democracy is in danger of collapse.
Republicans say 62 – 36 percent, independents say 57 – 39 percent, and Democrats say 56 – 37 percent
they think the nation’s democracy is in danger of collapse.
Just over half of Americans (53 percent) expect political divisions in the country to worsen over their
lifetime, 28 percent expect them to remain about the same, and 15 percent expect them to ease.
“A fear of the enemy within, not a foreign threat, punctuates a grim assessment by Americans of a
democracy in peril and a future of deepening political divisions,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim
Malloy.
JANUARY 6TH
Just over half of Americans (53 percent) think it is either very likely (19 percent) or somewhat likely (34
percent) that there will be another attack in the United States like the one that happened at the U.S. Capitol on
January 6, 2021. Forty-three percent think it is not so likely (22 percent) or not likely at all (21 percent).
