In most of 24 countries surveyed, more would vote for Biden than for Trump in the U.S. presidential election and expect Biden to win it; but many are concerned about the impact of fake news.

If people of 24 countries other than the United States could vote in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, 48% would cast a ballot for former Vice President Joe Biden while 17% would choose incumbent President Donald Trump. An Ipsos’ Global Advisor survey of more than 18,500 online adults in the U.S. and 24 other countries, conducted September 25-October 9, finds that outside the U.S., an average of 39% believe Biden will win and 27% believe Trump will.

Perceived threats to the U.S. election and the next major elections in their own country

Looking at the integrity of the upcoming U.S. presidential election, Americans are more likely than people living in other countries to believe this event could be impacted by four factors:

  • The spreading of fake news (cited as a serious risk by 45% of Americans vs. 35% of people in 24 other countries),
  • Efforts to misrecord, misuse, or destroy valid votes (36% vs. 19%),
  • Voter fraud (35% vs. 22%), and
  • Efforts to prevent people from voting (34% vs. 20%).

On average, people across the world are more likely to think the upcoming U.S. election is exposed to several specific risks than is the next major election in their country:

  • The spreading of fake news (globally cited by 35% as a serious risk in the U.S. vs. 28% as a risk in their country),
  • Efforts to prevent people from voting (20% vs. 15%), and
  • Interference from a foreign power (16% vs. 12%).

However, other risks are perceived to apply as much or as little to the U.S. as to their country:

  • Vote-buying (cited by 22% as a serious risk in the U.S. vs. 23% as a serious risk in their own country),
  • Voter fraud or impersonation (22% both),
  • Efforts to misrecord, misuse or destroy valid votes (19% vs. 18%), and
  • Organizational problems (16% vs. 17%).

Concern that the integrity of the next major election in one’s own country is at risk varies widely:

  • Many in the Netherlands (43%), Germany (38%), Australia and Japan (35%), Canada (32%), Belgium (31%), and France (30%) do not think any of these risks could seriously impact the results of their country’s next major election.
  • Very few do in Mexico (2%), South Africa (3%), Brazil and Hungary (both 4%), Argentina, India, Malaysia, Peru, Turkey (6%), the United States (8%), and Russia (10%).
