After a Year, Support for Mueller Probe Plummets

Support for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s 2016 activities has steadily declined since its beginning in the summer of 2017, according to a poll from Monmouth University.

“A special counsel is currently conducting an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible links with the Trump campaign. Should the Russia investigation continue or should it end?” pollsters asked 806 Americans.

The Monmouth poll found only 52 percent of Americans support the continuation of the Mueller probe, down from 73 percent in May 2017, when the investigation was still under the purview of the FBI.

Meanwhile, the number of Americans who support ending the investigation has risen to 45 percent, from 24 percent in May 2017.

The poll was taken from June 12 to June 13, just days before the Department of Justice Inspector General released a report revealing a number of FBI agents involved in the Trump probe held significant animus against the soon-to-be president.

President Trump spent much of the weekend attacking those involved in the investigation on Twitter.
