And just whose fault is that for Americans to be losing confidence in democracy if they went for Trump in the last presidential election? They have absolutely no one else to blame but themselves. They should not be seeking any sympathy from other Americans for their big mistake in voting Trump into office. Now, they're stuck with him and they have to bear the consequences. Well deserved!

The study consisted of a three-stage process. The conclusions in this report are drawn from a nationwide telephone survey of 1,700 adults, conducted from April 28 to May 8, 2018; and from 10 focus groups, held with different segments of the American public in five locations across the country, from March 12 to April 18, 2018.

A small sample isn't reliable.

Lack of reading comprehension again? First it was not a "poll" but a study and it does mention Trump.

It's right there in my link

The report comes against the backdrop of a raging debate over civility and Donald Trump’s polarizing approach to the presidency

But nice try at trying to derail the thread.
Maybe it goes beyond reading comprehension? Maybe goofy has trouble reading period?

From the link:

Overall, 8 in 10 Americans think “the influence of money in politics” is getting worse, rather than better.

Three in 4 Americans think that “the laws enacted by our national government these days mostly reflect what powerful special interests and their lobbyists want.”



This sums it up nicely. Disgust with the system is an understatement!

I'm going to read between the lines on this one: the pollsters fashioned a poll designed to detect people unhappy with losing a democratic election. Naturally those people blame democracy, and since they've been served up with a president that they insist is a threat to democracy, they would consider abolishing democracy in favor of a totalitarian dictatorship, as long as it's run by a dictator of their choosing. Did I get that about right?
An insane unhinged liberal doesn't know they're an insane unhinged liberal.
