US Spy Leaders Won't Brief Electors Even as Poll Shows Majority Want Vote Delay

Amid a nationwide protest effort aimed at convincing members of the Electoral College to reject Donald Trump and serious concerns about alleged interference in the U.S. election by Russia’s government, a new poll out Sunday reveals majority support for delaying Monday’s scheduled vote until electors are given an official intelligence briefing on the matter.

According to a YouGov poll conducted on behalf of the advocacy group Avaaz, 52% percent of respondents either “strongly agree” or “somewhat agree” that Monday’s “vote should be delayed until the Electors can be briefed about the allegations of Russian hacking.”

Demands for Electors to receive such a briefing have been growing steadily since several high-profile news stories said U.S. intelligence officials have determined with a “high level of confidence” that the Kremlin was involved with obtaining emails from the Democratic National Committee’s computer systems as well as emails from John Podesta, the powerful D.C. lobbyist who served as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair. Additional reporting claimed the CIA also believes that Russia specifically intervened to improve the chances of Donald Trump and NBC News used unnamed sources in its reporting that Russian President Vladimir Putin was “personally” involved in the operations.
