During this time of national division and political jockeying ahead of the 2020 presidential election, we thought it could be useful for you to see how your views stack up against those of other Americans.

We have drawn on data about Americans of various ages, races, incomes and education levels from across the country. The data was gathered by The Voter Study Group, a project of the independent and nonpartisan Democracy Fund, which works to strengthen American democracy.

Accordingly, the questions they asked and that we present here examine popular support for authoritarianism, satisfaction with democracy and backing for potential changes to the U.S. system of governing and elections. Answer the questions below to see just how much you agree — or don’t — with your fellow Americans.
