Half of Americans think the Russian government interfered with the 2016 election by hacking into Democratic Party computers, though a much smaller number believe it affected the outcome of the race, a new poll shows.

The Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey released Tuesday showed 51 percent of respondents said they believe Russia meddled in the election through hacking, while 36 percent disagreed.

Only 26 percent said they thought President-elect Donald Trump would've lost if the hacking hadn't occurred, while 63 percent said they weren't sure, the poll found.

In other findings, the survey showed one-third of Americans said Trump's relationship with Russia President Vladimir Putin is too friendly and inappropriate for a U.S. president; 24 percent disagreed with that assessment.

The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
