Voters in Pennsylvania will likely be responsible for selecting the next president of the United States in 2024.

A focus group in Pennsylvania, convened by Keep Our Republic, revealed deep concerns about the state of American democracy.

Participants expressed pessimism and distrust, particularly regarding the potential for violence around the 2024 election.

A voter in the focus group named Jackie, said, “I almost feel numb to it.”

“We’re going to have another election, could that happen again? I probably won’t even react the same, because I’m like ‘this is what happens.’ … Something’s probably going to happen,” she continued.

Former Rep. Charlie Dent said, “Everybody agreed on one thing: That there’s a very good chance there’s gonna be violence in the next election.”

“There’s a heightened sense of, or concern about, civil disorder in the next election.”

Christopher Borick, a pollster and professor, said, this election will determine “whether democracy is still America’s sacred cause.”

A voter named Mike said, “America’s Got Talent can tally 50 million votes in 15 minutes.”

“How can we not elect officials effectively, and not feel confident? Across the board, I don’t feel a lot of confidence here that all of our votes are getting counted properly,” he lamented.

A participant named Jimmy said, “If they tell me they’re working, I am hoping they’re working.”

“I try to be optimistic,” he added.

Keep Our Republic’s executive director, Ari Mittleman, said, “If you look at the climate, I think we should assume that it’s going to be incredibly, incredibly tumultuous.”

“All we can do is put up speed bumps. And our hypothesis is … who is turned to in these communities in purple America, in these three states? It’s not the president. It’s not the politicians,” claimed the executive.

“I’ll be the first to say, it’s a total hypothesis that might be proven wrong. People might tune into national news, talking heads and experts who’ve never been to Northampton County or Kent County, Michigan, or whatever,” he continued.

“But I have a feeling they’re going to go and say to people in their community, ‘What’s this all about?’” asked Mittleman.
