Poll: Two-thirds of US voters say democracy needs to be fixed

More than two-thirds of U.S. voters say that democracy in the country needs to be fixed, according to a new Hill-HarrisX poll conducted in the lead-up to the November election.

Sixty-nine percent of registered voters in the survey said democracy in the United States needs to be "fixed," while 31 percent said democracy "is working the way it was designed to."

The poll found an overwhelming majority in agreement across all demographics.

Seventy-two percent of Democrats and independents said democracy in the U.S. needs fixing, while 61 percent of Republicans agreed.

The survey comes as tens of millions of voters across the country have already cast their ballots early in the 2020 presidential election.

The poll was conducted online Oct. 19-22 among 943 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 3.19 percentage points.
