Most K Street leaders worry about foreign election interference

Most K Street leaders worry about foreign election interference

Nearly three-quarters of K Street leaders are concerned about foreign interference in the November elections, according to our latest survey.

Respondents were divided along party lines. The majority of Democratic K Street leaders (90%) reported they were concerned about foreign interference in November compared to 61% of their GOP counterparts.

This result mirrors our survey of senior Hill staffers in April, where 73% of respondents also said the member of Congress they work for is worried about foreign adversaries meddling in the election.

The unease from K Street leaders comes as lawmakers warn of possible foreign interference without a clear plan from Congress on how to address the issue.

Despite this concern, 63% of all respondents, including 43% of GOP K Street leaders, believe that President Joe Biden will get reelected in the fall.

It’s important to note our survey was conducted before former President Donald Trump was found guilty Thursday in his New York City hush-money case. Recent polls from The New York Times, Siena College and The Philadelphia Inquirer prior to the conviction had shown Biden trailing Trump in key battleground states.

The Canvass K Street was conducted May 6-24 in partnership with independent public affairs firm, LSG.
