A new poll finds 52% of young Americans believe the country's democracy is either 'in trouble' or has failed. Only 7% of youth said they thought democracy in the U.S. is 'healthy.'

Early Olympics attendees eat noodles served from ceiling - CNN Video

Watch how noodles, rice and burgers are prepared and delivered by robots at the Beijing Olympics Village. Journalists are among the early attendees having this futuristic experience.

For democracy, strengthen voting rights. For the republic, end the filibuster and institute campaign finance reform. It’s policy, not rocket science. It’s collapsing. ElectProject If only the 93% did something to increase the health of US democracy like vote… They have no civics class they only know what they see on Tic Tok

Then let's replace it with something better I STRONGLY support the United States Constitution. However, 'the dogmas of the past' predicate that any such charter be revisited once every 100 years, in my opinion. Despite the fact that we do not presently have leaders with the ability to do so. Marred by party.

And yet they don’t vote…. They’re right 😞 You can thank many teachers and parents for teaching children that democracy is evil! And as a recruiter, I speak to foreign nationals every day who think America and democracy are awesome. They think we have it all compared to where they come from. Europeans agree with our kids. Democracy is in peril. The Insurrectionist Party has shown all its weaknesses and has a mission to destroy our govt. Democrats support the right to vote; Republicans support gerrymandering. We are forcing our kids into the fight of our lives.

Well...when you have to wear bullet proof backpacks to school while watching elected officials promote insurrections, death threats and childish insults you would feel it was a failure too.

Not that I disagree but is it newsworthy to point out that the youth vote is dissatisfied with the state of the government? Doesn’t that happen with every generation? It HAS failed. It’s been completely fucked since the Regan administration. The kids get it So, will this age group stay home on voting day?

'But overall, a majority said the pandemic has had a negative impact on their life.' This question belongs in the Duh file, doesn't it? I mean, were they asked; 'Has the pandemic had a 𝙥𝙤𝙨𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚 impact on your life?' and if so, what was the result? We live in an oligarchy. The US has never been a democracy on any level.

What's terrifying is that it is young Republicans, the party actively attacking the founding principles of democracy, who believe more that it is broken. All based on lies of voter fraud while promoting suppression and legislation to ignore actual election results. Propaganda... Democracy was challenged but it didn't fail. The unknown is if Trump is a 1 person phenomenon or the start of a trend.

Only 52%? Then get ALL those young fuckers to VOTE!!

LPNational our time is now! It’s pretty clear that it is And for those who insist that it isn’t, clearly the system is working quite well for them and they don’t want to change it They can raise the alarm, but the folks running the gerontocracy need to crank up their hearing aids to hear it. We are five years from no longer being a democracy

None of the people commenting here have read the article. Hilarious They're right This type of poll is totally worthless. And probably half of Gen X. You mean that the two party system, that has worked state by state to block other candidates from other parties or independents, is not truly representative of most of the country? Shocking!

yeah, our democracy is pretty much completely fucked
