Dislike of Mueller grows as more people learn about him

Dislike of Mueller grows as more people learn about him”

Special counsel Robert Mueller's office added to the doubts surrounding the media's reporting on the Russian Federation investigation, saying that "many stories" were "inaccurate". And a new poll shows the more people find out, the less they like Mueller.

"The most striking shift is among Republicans". For the first time, a 56 percent majority of Republicans say the Federal Bureau of Investigation is biased against the president, with just 34 percent saying it's only doing its job.

Though Mueller's team would not address that story specifically, the spokesperson said reporter, beware. In February, 70 percent of US adults said the special counsel should finish his job, and 14 percent of Americans said they weren't sure. Trump's disdain for the excesses of the investigation has prompted speculation that the U.S. president wants to fire Mueller and calls by Democrats in Congress for a law that would prevent Trump from doing so.

Despite sharp criticism from a sitting president about an ongoing investigation, 45 percent of Americans still say Mueller's work is fair.

The poll said 65 percent say he would be permitted to finish, and 15 percent said he could be fired.

One thing that hasn't changed since February in the polling is that Americans across the board, by a more than 4-to-1 margin, don't think Congress has done enough to ensure that Russian Federation won't interfere in the elections again.

Now, 31 percent believe the Federal Bureau of Investigation is biased against the Trump administration, including a shift among independents from 20 percent with that opinion to 30 percent, the poll said.

And about one-third of Americans say he shouldn't be allowed to finish or are unsure.

Overall, 55 percent say Russian interference come November is likely or very likely, while 40 percent say it's unlikely or won't happen at all.

Americans also think it's possible Russian Federation will seek to interfere in the USA elections again this November, the poll indicates, and that Congress hasn't done enough to stop that from happening - though Republicans overwhelmingly don't believe that is a possibility.

But when asked this month about the security of those elections and if Russian Federation posed a threat, most USA adults - 55 percent - said they now think Russian Federation will likely interfere. Since it was first asked, attitudes have reversed on this question. But that number has dropped - from 71 percent in February.

"Americans are unable to a find a silver lining on this issue".
