Over a 50% of American voters agree with President Trump’s long-shared condemnation of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as a political witch hunt, according to the latest USA Today/Suffolk University Poll on Monday.
A total of 503 registered voters among 1,000 polled (50.3%) replied “Yes” to the survey question: “President Trump has called the special counsel’s investigation a ‘witch hunt’ and said he’s been subjected to more investigations than previous Presidents because of politics. Do you agree?”
A total of 468 (46.8%) replied “No,” while 27 were undecided (2.7%) and 2 refused to answer (0.2%).
The results were hailed by President Trump via tweet Monday:
“Wow! A Suffolk/USA Today Poll, just out, states, ’50 percent of Americans AGREE that Robert Mueller’s investigation is a Witch Hunt.’ @MSNBC Very few think it is legit! We will soon find out?”
President Trump has hammered at the credibility of Robert Mueller and his team since their appointment and public confidence has waned of late, notably as the anticipated conclusion and delivery of the report to Attorney General William Barr draws near.
Also notable in the poll results, support for the House to seriously consider impeaching President Trump has dropped 10% since October to just 28%, according to the report.
The Suffolk University survey of 1,000 registered voters was conducted between 13-17 March and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
Making and Keeping America Great!
