How Americans view Russian role in the U.S. election

As the reach of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is increasingly explored, this year will see the continued investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into links or coordination between individuals associated with President Trump’s campaign and the Russian government.

Trump has firmly denied any allegations of collusion—including a total of 16 times in an interview with The New York Times in late December. “There is no collusion, and even if there was, it’s not a crime,” Trump said, adding, “But there’s no collusion.”

To help understand how public opinion on this polarizing topic ranges across the country, MSN conducted reader polling in December across a series of questions related to Russia’s role in the election, including:

- Do you believe the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign?

- Do you believe the Trump campaign's interactions with Russian interests affected the outcome of the election?

- Is the government doing enough to prevent foreign interference in US elections?

Nationally, polling showed a near-even split in opinion towards allegations of collusion, with 49% believing that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign and 48% indicating they did not.

A closer look at the data, however, indicates deep divides along various demographics. At the state level, Alabama and North Dakota registered the greatest disbelief towards any complicity, with 78% indicating they do not think the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. States where residents most strongly feel collusion occurred include Rhode Island (72% yes), Washington, D.C. (84%), and Hawaii (85%). Meanwhile, comparing from a political affiliation standpoint showed an even greater difference, with a mere 9% of Republicans believe collusion occurred while 86% of Democrats believe it did.

In the following slides, we've included full results of where each party, gender, age, and state stands on this polarizing issue. Read on to see how various groupings across the U.S. compared.

MSN Poll results are analyzed to represent the U.S. adult population or specific sub-demographics. MSN describes the U.S. adult population by thousands of combinations of age, gender, education, location and several other demographics. MSN takes the raw polling data and models how demographic groups answered each question, and then projects those answers onto the true distribution of the demographic groups. The method was tested in the 2016 election and proven to be as accurate as other polling methods -- more details can be found here.
