Six in 10 women voters have experienced sexual harassment, with nearly 70 percent of those saying it happened in the workplace, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.

The results, according to Quinnipiac's survey:

  • 60 percent of women have experienced sexual harassment
  • 69 percent of women experienced it in the workplace
  • 43 percent say it happened in social settings
  • 45 percent say it happened on the street
  • 15 percent say it happened at home

Among men, 20 percent said they have experienced sexual harassment.

Overall, 64 percent of voters know somebody who has been sexually harassed, and 30 percent know someone who has harassed another, according to Quinnipiac.

Nearly nine in 10 of both men and women agree that sexual harassment is a serious problem.

Further, if Judge Roy Moore wins the Dec. 12 special election in Alabama, 60 percent of the voters said Congress should expel him, including 33 percent of Republicans who said that; 49 percent of GOP voters said he should not be expelled.

"Roy Moore may make it to the Senate chambers, but an overwhelming majority of American voters would like to rip the welcome mat out from under him and send him packing back to Alabama," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

From Nov. 15 to Nov. 20, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,415 voters nationwide with a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
