POLL: 69% Support Mueller’s Probe Into Russian Collusion, 64% Support Probe Into Trump’s Business

The people have spoken.

After an FBI raid on his personal lawyer’s residence and office, President Donald Trump increased calls for an end to the Russia probe and a narrowing of its scope. Based on a new poll by The Washington Post and ABC News, the people of the United States disagree.

The president suggests the investigation focus only on Russian collusion, and ignore things such as the potential bank fraud and campaign finance violations committed related to $280,000 in payouts made by his lawyer, Michael Cohen, and The National Enquirer.

In response to the president’s calls for any investigation of himself or members of his administration or his campaign ignoring any other crimes committed by those individuals, outside of collusion with Russia, The Washington Post and ABC News conducted a poll April 8-11, 2018.

The 8 question poll covered “Support for Mueller investigation and views of fired FBI Director Jim Comey.”

For the question “A special counsel at the U.S. Justice Department, Robert Mueller, has been investigating possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russian govt to influence the 2016 election. Do you support or oppose Mueller investigating this issue?”, the poll found 69 percent support Mueller, 25 percent oppose Mueller, and 6 percent had no opinion.
