Poll: Majority expects foreign meddling in midterms

The catch: Fourteen states still lack full capacity to go back and double-check the accuracy of electronic tallies, which might give pause to some of the 64% who express confidence in those counts. On the other hand, as Marian Schneider, president of Verified Voting, points out, those vulnerabilities represent a risk, not a certainty, that something could go wrong.

The numbers that matter:

There are fewer Americans willing to say they are very confident that votes will be accurately counted. Just 24% said in the Axios/SurveyMonkey poll they are “very confident” votes will be accurately counted now, compare to about 35% in a similar poll by Gallup just two years ago.
