Thirty-seven percent of registered voters say they have little or no confidence that the November election will be conducted fairly and accurately, according to a Monmouth University poll.

Sixty-one percent said they were either very confident or somewhat confident about how the election will be conducted.

“We usually focus on the majority’s view when describing public opinion, but in this case, minority opinion could be sizable enough to have an impact on the election’s legitimacy,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute. “The question is whether any disbelief in the outcome might lead to other consequences.”

Here are some highlights from the poll, released on Thursday:

  • 39% say it is either very likely or somewhat likely the Joe Biden campaign will try to cheat, if necessary, to win in November. 57% said it is not too likely or not at all likely.
  • 52% say it is either very likely or somewhat likely that President Donald Trump’s campaign will try to cheat, if necessary. 45% said it is not too likely or not at all likely.
  • 36% say the Russian government is definitely trying to interfere in the presidential election. 28% say the Russians are probably trying to interfere. 31% say the Russians are either probably not or definitely not trying to meddle in the election.

The poll, conducted Sept. 3-8, surveyed 758 people. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
