Voters Still See Mueller Charges Against Trump As Unlikely

Hope breeds eternal in the hearts of Democrats, but other voters see little chance of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation trapping President Trump.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of all Likely U.S. Voters still believe that Mueller’s probe is likely to lead to criminal charges against the president, with 22% who say it’s Very Likely. But 50% consider charges against Trump to be unlikely, including 26% who say they are Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
