On today's What America's Thinking, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds 65 percent of voters say they have a great deal or are somewhat confident in the American electoral system to fairly and accurately count their vote while 35 percent say they have little or no confidence at all, including 21 percent who say none at all. This survey was conducted online within the United States from January 8-11 among 2,854 registered voters by HarrisX. The sampling margin of error of this poll is plus or minus 1.8 percentage points. The results reflect a nationally representative sample of registered voters. Results were weighted for age, gender, region, race/ethnicity, income, political party, education, ideology, area type, and vote choice where necessary to align them with their actual proportions in the population.
