Trump Impeachment Trial Awaits, Many Americans Say Government Is Broken

With former President Donald Trump's second impeachment trial set to begin Tuesday, "less than half of the public feels that the American system of government is basically sound," according to a poll released Monday by the Monmouth University Polling Institute.

The polls showed that 55% say the government is unsound and 22% believe significant changes are needed to fix it. Only 44% of those polled said that the government was sound, with the vast majority of those believing some improvements are needed.

Monmouth has asked the question annually since 2017 and this is the first time a majority held a dim view of the system of government. The question itself dates to late 1980, a time when 62% of those surveyed believed in the soundness of the government compared to 37% that did not.
