Americans Worried About Country's Future

( – Over the past year, the country has experienced a botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, a rise in COVID-19 cases, supply-side issues, and exploding inflation. As a result, Americans have grown increasingly concerned about the future of America. A new poll reveals that 8 in 10 adults believe our democracy is in peril, even if they don’t agree on the reason.

The survey, carried out by USA Today in conjunction with Suffolk University, shows that 83% of respondents expressed concern about the country’s political landscape. The worry extends across party lines with 82% of Democrats and 86% of Republicans agreeing there’s cause for worry.

When asked if the country’s democracy was stronger or weaker than 4 years ago, the majority of both parties, including 59% of Democrats and 85% of Republicans agreed it was weaker. But this is where the similarities end.

The poll also addressed the January 6 House Committee and if it’s work was important. While 88% of Democrats believe the committee needs to get to the bottom of matters, 78% of Republicans think it’s a waste of time. Yet, the majority of respondents, 54%, lack confidence in the final report.

The poll was carried out over the course of three days, December 27 to December 30, 2021, with a +/- 3.1% margin of error.
