USA TODAY reports that “Americans are facing the 2020 presidential election with a dominant feeling: Dread.”
“A nationwide USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll found a sharply divided country that views next year’s presidential campaign as a sobering test of the fundamental values of the United States. A majority of those on both sides called the election the most important of their lifetimes.
And after it’s over?
If the candidate they support loses, nearly four in 10 said they would have little or no confidence that the election had been conducted in a fair-and-square way, setting up what could be a debate over the legitimacy of the next president. Those expressing doubts crossed partisan lines – 30% of Republicans and 45% of Democrats – although they identified different threats to the electoral process.” . . . .
More than eight in 10 said they believed that the fundamental values of the United States were being tested in 2020 more so than in previous elections.
Asked to give one word that described how they were feeling about next year’s contest, four of the top five responses conveyed alarm and angst, with voters using words such as “frightened,” “train wreck,” “nervous” and “chaotic.” (Excerpt from USA Today)
