Poll: Voters ambivalent about Russia probe

In a survey conducted over this past weekend, three-in-10 voters say they think the contents of the memo, drafted by the staff of House intelligence committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) are “mostly true,” and 22 percent think the contents are mostly false. Nearly half, 48 percent, don’t know or have no opinion…

Ambivalence toward the investigation extends to the man running it: Despite a sterling military and law-enforcement career — staying out of the public eye during this investigation — nearly as many voters have an unfavorable opinion of special counsel Robert Mueller (30 percent) as view Mueller favorably (32 percent).

“Republican skepticism has grown around the Russia probe and special counsel Robert Mueller,” said Morning Consult Co-Founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp. “Only 22 percent of Republicans have a favorable opinion of Robert Mueller, and just 25 percent say the investigation has been handled fairly.”
