With the balance of power in Congress still undecided, voters clearly dislike delayed reporting of election results.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll.
The national survey finds that 65% of likely U.S. voters agree that many states take too long to count the votes and report results on Election Night, including 37% who "strongly agree."
Just 28% disagree, with 13% who "strongly disagree."
Several key races across the country remained undecided, with the majority in both the U.S. House and Senate at stake.
Forty-five percent (45%) of voters say when states take a long time to report election results, it makes them less confident that the election is fair.
Just 25% say late results make them more confident that the election is fair, while 27% say delayed results don’t make much difference in their confidence.
Majorities of every political category – 74% of Republicans, 50% of Democrats and 52% of unaffiliated voters – think election laws should be reformed to require states to report election results in a more timely manner.
