A new survey is now showing that a troubling number of people in advanced Democracies like the US and Germany are now losing faith in the Democratic process.
The Details: The Survey, conducted by Edelman Trust Barometer report, shows that trust in democratic institutions fell 7 percent in Germany, 6 points in Australia, and by 5 points in the United States compared to where they previously were in 2021.
