More than half of voters expect violence in response to the November election results, according to a new poll published Wednesday.

In the YouGov survey, about 55 percent of registered voters said they thought violence would increase in the U.S. following the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Just under 11 percent of respondents said they didn’t expect a rise in violence to occur after the election, while 33 percent of voters were unsure.

The same poll also determined that 50 percent of Americans expect the country at large to disagree about which candidate wins the presidential election, while 49 percent said they expected Americans to largely accept the election results.

Just over half, 52 percent, said they expected the November elections to be held in a “fair and honest” manner, while 47 percent doubted that the process would be above-board.
