This virtual forum was a discussion about the "Perceptions of Democracy" survey. Researchers polled 1,899 adults in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming to find out how they feel about the state of democracy in America, perceptions on common ground, media and misinformation, the 2020 election and views on the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

The study is part of the Democracy Project, an initiative of the Frank Church Institute at Boise State University.
