38%

Only 38% of Republican voters think that the 2022 midterm elections will be fair. This is a depressingly low number but not surprising since Trump began his hypnotizing of his base electorate and convinced them that sabotage would cost him the election even before it took place. Now we know the full power of social media and its ability to sway low education voters.

For the first time ever, the US has been put on a list of countries with backsliding democracies which is a distressing sign and the January 6th insurrection may have been just a small taste of something bigger to come as millions of voters lose confidence in their own electoral system.

Before we had social media, low education people didn't have many common meeting places so readily accessible and which could reach such a wide audience. But now you just need a few websites, a few propaganda news networks and some motivated conspiracy theorists to undo an entire political structure.
