32% Say FBI Director Must Go

Most voters continue to view the embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation favorably and aren’t ready to fire the FBI’s boss because of its failure to act on warning signs about the Florida school shooter.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 32% of Likely U.S. Voters think FBI Director Christopher Wray should resign or be fired because of the agency’s failure to act on tips alerting them beforehand to the shooter who killed 17 last week. Just over half (52%) disagree, but 16% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
