New Poll Finds Americans Don’t Really Care About the Russian  Investigation

A new CBS News/YouGov battleground tracker poll found that Americans aren’t all that concerned with what Congressional candidates running in the 2018 midterm election have to say about the ongoing Russian investigation.

When asked what they want to hear candidates talk about on the campaign trail, 52 percent of voters said they didn’t want to hear much about the Russia investigation, compared to 23 percent who want to hear “a lot” about the issue.

The Russian investigation ranked well behind issues like health care, income inequality, education, and jobs.

CBS News reported:

“Four in 10 Democrats want to hear a lot from candidates about the Russia investigation, ranking it lower in priority than these other issues. Only 9 percent of Republicans want candidates to talk a lot about that issue.”

The battleground tracker also found that nearly half of Democrats voting in 2018 said they would be voting against Republican candidates rather than for Democratic candidates, while 45 percent of those polled said that the Democratic Party doesn’t currently have a leader.
