Poll: Most Americans think Russia will interfere again in 2018 elections

More than half of Americans think Russia will likely attempt to influence this year’s midterm elections, according to the results of a new NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll released Wednesday — and most don’t think the government is doing enough to stop it.

With the congressional probes aimed at investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 race still incomplete, a majority of Americans — 55 percent — are not confident that the federal government is doing enough to prevent foreign interference in our elections. Additionally, 57 percent of Americans think it’s likely that Russia will try to influence this year’s midterms.
