Voters are not fond of late election results according to the latest Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey.

Sixty-five percent of likely U.S. voters agree that many states take too long to count the votes and report results on Election Night. That includes 37 percent who strongly agree.

Only 28 percent of voters disagree, with just 13 percent who strongly disagree.

Americans had no clue what the results of a few key races were when they went to bed early Wednesday morning. Forty-five percent of voters said when states take a long time to report election results it makes them less confident the election is fair. Twenty-five percent said late results make them more confident the election is fair.

Fifty-nine percent said election laws should be reformed to require states to report election results in a more timely manner. Only 25 percent oppose such reforms.
