Most Americans think Russia is unfriendly with the United States, and about half believe the Russian government is trying to interfere with the presidential election, a new CNN/ORC poll shows

According to the poll, conducted July 29-31 of a random sample of 1,003 Americans, including 894 registered voters:

  • 60 percent see Russia unfriendly;
  • 50 percent say Russia is trying to influence the outcome;
  • 61 percent found it a bigger problem that Russia may have hacked into the Democratic National Committee's email;
  • 31 percent thought it was a bigger problem that GOP nominee Donald Trump suggested hackers should go after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's emails;
  • 43 percent of Trump supporters see Russia as friendly;
  • 36 percent of Clinton's backers think Russia is friendly;
  • 60 percent of Clinton supporters think Russia is trying to influence the election;
  • 33 percent of Trump backers think Russia is trying to interfere.

Most of those polled also favored Clinton over trump when it comes to who to trust in handling foreign policy:

  • 59 percent Clinton;
  • 36 percent, Trump;
  • Trump and Clinton tied at 48 percent each on handling terrorism.

The poll also showed Clinton over Trump on how they would handle most domestic issues:

  • Economy: Clinton over Trump, 50-48 percent;
  • Race relations: Clinton, 61-34 percent;
  • Criminal justice: Clinton, 50-43 percent;
  • Violence against police officers: Clinton 49-44 percent;

Clinton also was ahead of Trump on health care, nominating Supreme Court justices, dealing with immigration and trade, while Trump was slightly ahead on handling gun policy, the poll shows.

In addition, the poll showed for the first time for a CNN/ORC poll that Democrats are more enthusiastic than Republicans about voting in November:

  • Democrats and Democratic leaning voters: 51 percent;
  • Republicans and Republican-leaning voters: 41 percent;
  • Overall: 44 percent enthusiastic.
     

Voters are also not happy about their choices this year:

  • Republicans: 59 percent;
  • Democrats: 42 percent;
  • Independents: 67 percent.
  • 47 percent are dissatisfied but will vote;
  • 9 percent are considering not voting.

The poll's margin of error among registered voters was 3.5 percent.
