The Economist Group: ‘The U.S. is No Longer a Full Democracy’

U. S. News & World Report reported on January 25th,

For the first time in its history, the research and analysis division of The Economistus-capital Group, the sister company to the The Economist newspaper, has listed the U.S. as a “flawed democracy” in its annual Democracy Index.

The Economist Intelligence Unit downgraded the U.S. from a “full democracy” to a “flawed democracy,” due to the “further erosion of trust in government and elected officials there,” according to the group’s website.
