Just 37% Think Mueller's Probe Good for the Country

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has spent $17 million so far investigating allegations of Russian collusion in the 2016 election. But nearly half of voters don’t think his probe is worth the money, and few believe the outcome will benefit the United States.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 37% of Likely U.S. Voters believe, regardless of its outcome, that Mueller’s investigation will be good for the country in the long run. Twenty-nine percent (29%) think the results of his probe will be bad for the country. Twenty-three percent (23%) say it will have no impact. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure. (To see survey questions wording, click here.)
