Most Voters Stand By FBI, Don’t Want to Dump Wray

Despite increasing reports of high-level FBI complicity in attacks on the Trump campaign and the early Trump presidency, voters still view the federal police agency favorably and aren’t ready to dump its current director.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 60% of Likely U.S. Voters continue to share a favorable view of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with 24% who view it Very Favorably. This is little changed from surveys over the past several years. Thirty-four percent (34%) view the agency unfavorably, but that includes just 14% with a Very Unfavorable opinion.
