39% Say Mueller Investigation Should End

President Trump has been tweeting about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into allegations of Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election lately, including imploring Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end what he called a “Rigged Witch Hunt.” Though most voters don’t believe the investigation is a witch hunt, 39% agree with the president that it’s time for it to end.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with the president that Mueller should close his investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 president election. Fifty percent (50%) disagree, but another 11% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
