  • 31% said the U.S. government has taken the necessary steps to stop foreign interference in elections, and 58% said foreign governments pose a threat to U.S. election security.
  • 72% said election officials would count paper ballots accurately.
  • 60% said they favor a Constitutional amendment to use the popular vote, rather than the Electoral College, to elect the president.

U.S. intelligence officials concluded Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. election.
