Michael Traugott discussed the fragility of American democracy on WYXZ’s Upfront

Michael Traugott joined WYXZ’s 7 Upfront to discuss the January 6 insurrection and its impact on the country:

“The armed insurrection was unlike any kind of event that we’ve seen maybe since the War of 1812. And it demonstrated in a very painful way how fragile our democracy is. It’s not really based on a set of laws, but more a set of common assumptions about representative government, about the simple transfer of power from one administration to the next, and we had, essentially, an organized attempt at a coup.”
