President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and former Deputy independent advice Sol Wisenberg respond to the Congress ” pushing for further investigations.

Here are five take-aways on the Russia-investigation of a Fox News poll released Thursday.

— Republicans are warming to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, while Democrats cooling to him.

— Müller is more trusted than the President and the attorney General.

— The voters think there is a chance the FBI broke the law in the investigation of the trump campaign.

— More against the impeachment of President trump as a support.

— Voters disapprove of, such as attorney General Barr, dealing with the Müller report, and are wary of his motives.

Here are the numbers behind these results:

Forty-six percent of voters approve of the way Mueller treated the Russia investigation, while 32 percent disapprove.

Thirty-eight percent of Republicans to join 55 percent of the Democrats in the approval of Mueller — and both of these figures represent a significant shift. The approval has charges under the Republicans and under the Democrats since the conclusion of his investigation, have not found evidence of a criminal conspiracy between trump employee and Russia-and did not result in any obstruction of justice against the President.

Among Republicans, Müller-net-job-evaluation points, the approve of the negative 43 (23, improved by 41 percent, 66 disapprove) in March to minus 2 today (38-40 percent).

Among Democrats, Müller-approval deteriorated by 43 points, falling from +73 (82-9 per cent) before the report to +30 (55-25 percent) in the new survey.

When asked who they trust more to tell the truth, the voters Mueller about trump choose (from 45-27 percent), Müller-about Attorney General William Barr (of 40-22 percent), and the Democrats in the Congress on the administration (by 44-33 percent).

The voters give Barr negative ratings for his handling of the Müller report (35 approve, 44 reject), and a 12-point margin, more think he is a “cover-up” for the President to be as transparent with the American people (45-33 percent).

Barr said he was on the search, whether or not in the first FBI spying on Trump’s campaign was legally testified and has the task, U.S. attorney for the District of Connecticut John H. Durham, a view into the origins of the Russian investigation.


A majority (58 percent) thinks it should be broken up, at least a little more likely the FBI, the law, when it first started, the study of the Trump campaign: 24 percent say “very” likely, and 14 percent “very” likely, and 20 percent “somewhat” likely. The Republicans (77 percent) believes 35 points more likely than Democrats (42 percent), that it’s happened at least a chance on illegal activity.

In a retrospective job rating, 32 percent of the work of James Comey to advocate, as the Director of the FBI, while 40 percent oppose it. A further 27 per cent are unsure.

Voters against impeachment Trump and not remove him from office: 42 percent Yes, 50 percent. Seven in 10 Democrats want him charged, compared to 1 in 10 Republicans. These numbers have not moved since January.

At the same time, the voters are more inclined to believe that Democrats in Congress are on the search for truth for the American people (49 percent) as an attack on Trump is unfair (41 percent).


Under the sub-group of voters who are extremely or very familiar with the Müller report, views generally lean more against the administration. Fifty-four per cent of committed voters say Democrats in Congress are on the search for truth, 53 per cent think Barr cover for trump, and the views of impeachment split 49-49 percent. Sixty-one percent approve of Müller.

But the Russian election meddling is not what most Americans spend their time thinking about it. In conversations with friends and neighbors, about 4 in 10 say that they often talk about the cost of health care (40 percent) and illegal immigration (37 percent). This is roughly double the number, often the Russian interference will discuss in the choice (21 percent).
