Eighty-two percent of Americans want special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election should be made public, while just under half still believe President Donald Trump committed obstruction of justice, according to a new survey.
Key results from the Politico/Morning Consult poll:
- 47 percent of voters think Trump impeded or obstructed justice while the Russia investigation was going on, with 39 percent saying the opposite.
- 55 percent disapprove of the job Trump is doing, compared to 42 percent who approve.
- 82 percent said special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his Russia probe should be made public.
- 39 percent said lawmakers should continue investigating whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to win the 2016 election — despite Mueller clearing Trump of wrongdoing.
The poll was conducted Monday and Tuesday.
Attorney General William Barr announced Sunday via a letter to Congress that Mueller found no evidence to suggest Trump colluded with Russia. The letter also said Mueller could not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice — which he was accused of doing by firing James Comey as FBI director in May 2017.
