Trump vs. Mueller, and The Winner Is …

Democrats are hoping to find something in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report that will help them impeach President Trump, but maybe their best bet is to make Mueller the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump and Mueller in a virtual tie when it comes to the presidency. Forty-three percent (43%) say Trump would make a better president than Mueller, but just as many (42%) see Mueller as a better chief executive. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
