Simply Embarrassing

Today's Washington Post (not online) shares numbers from a recent Associated Press poll, conducted Sept. 8-30, but this is the first I've seen of it. If this doesn't embarrass Americans, I don't know what will:
QUESTION: How confident are you that votes in (your country's) elections are counted accurately?

Percent saying they are "confident":

Canada 87%
France 85%
Germany 84%
South Korea 84%
United Kingdom 80%
Spain 75%
United States 66%
Italy 64%
Mexico 60%
Six percentage points ahead of Mexico. Given the level of public corruption south of the border, that's nothing to smile about.

Conservatives love to bash France, but their people have a confidence level that is nearly 20 points higher than ours.
