A majority of Americans are not confident that the country’s election systems are secure from cyber threats and think that it is likely that a foreign country will try to influence next week’s midterm elections, according to a new poll.
A Pew Research survey released Monday found that about 45 percent of respondents were at least somewhat confident that U.S. election systems are secure. However, only 8 percent said they were very confident in the security of the systems, and 55 percent said they are either not too or not at all confident that the systems are secure.
When broken down by party, a majority of Republicans or respondents leaning toward the GOP were very or somewhat confident in the security of the systems, with 59 percent agreeing with the statements.
