Americans are also more than willing to reform another part of the voting system: the Electoral College. Of those surveyed, 63 percent would vote for the abolishment of the Electoral College, while just under three in 10 say they'd lodge a ballot against such a measure.
Democrats — with former Vice President Al GoreAl GoreMichael Moore tears up copy of Washington Post at women's march Trump fails to mention Clinton in inaugural address Hillary Clinton under microscope at inauguration MORE's popular vote win but Electoral College loss likely still fresh in mind — are the most likely to support its abolishment, with two-thirds saying they would vote for such a measure. But other groups aren't far behind, with 63 percent of independents and 61 percent of Republicans supporting a vote against the complex system of allocating electors to each state.
"Despite sharp polarization of the parties on many issues in 21st-century politics, Republicans and Democrats broadly agree on both longstanding election reform proposals," Gallup's Lydia Saad said in a statement.
