One Third of Americans Hold Anti-Democratic Views

A new Axios/Ipsos poll finds 33% of Americans “prefer strong unelected leaders to weak elected leaders and says presidents should be able to remove judges over their decisions.”

“The findings from this poll shatter the myth that Americans overwhelmingly agree on a common set of democratic values around checks and balances on elected leaders, protection of minority rights and freedom of speech.”

“They’re also a reality check against President Biden’s speech that portrayed threats to democracy as solely driven by Republican supporters of former President Trump who refuse to accept that he lost the 2020 election.”
