Almost 90 percent of political consultants think it is likely one or both of the two major political parties' presidential campaigns will be the victim of a cyberattack before the 2020 election, according to the results of a new poll.

Key figures in the Campaigns & Elections magazine's State of the Campaign Industry Survey:

  • 87 percent said it is very or somewhat likely one or both major campaigns will be hacked next year.

  • 9 percent said a hack is somewhat or very unlikely.

  • 56 percent said it is very or somewhat likely "foreign interference will call into question" the 2020 presidential election results.

  • 82 percent said it is very or somewhat likely digital strategists will grow more comfortable using online disinformation tactics to hurt the chances of opposing candidates.

  • 50 percent said it is very or somewhat likely President Donald Trump will win reelection, while 45 percent said the opposite.

  • 26 percent said it is very or somewhat likely Trump will be impeached before next year's election.
