A majority of Americans says in a stunning new poll that U.S. democracy is at risk of 'extinction.'
The assessment comes in a new poll near the anniversary of President Joe Biden's first year in office, just days after the anniversary of the Capitol riot.
About half, or 26 per cent, said U.S. democracy's survival 'is secured for future generations,' according to the poll from Schoen Cooperman Research.
Slightly fewer, 23 per cent, said they weren't sure, with 51 per cent saying democracy was in danger of extinction.
The result comes after President Joe Biden spoke about the Capitol riot during a voting rights speech in Atlanta, saying that a year ago a 'dagger was literally held at the throat of American democracy.'
