NBC News Exit Poll: Many Trump Voters Not Confident About Accuracy of Vote Count

According to early results of the NBC News Exit Poll, most voters are confident that votes cast in their states today will be accurately counted. Donald Trump’s voters are less confident than Hillary Clinton’s voters that the count will be accurate, but even among them, 78 percent are at least somewhat confident.

Clinton voters feel more confident in the process. Nearly seven in 10 Clinton voters expressed complete confidence that votes counted in their states will correctly reflect voting activity today, and an additional two in 10 said they are “somewhat confident” about the vote count. Fewer than one in 10 Clinton voters lack confidence that votes being counted in their states will not be accurate.

For all the discussion of a rigged election, voters expressed about the same level of confidence as they did in 2008 — at least on this measure.
