If it tend to the Russia investigation, the voters, to trust that the Congress of the protection of the country is to play — and not a policy. This is according to a new Fox News poll asked the question two ways.

From a nine-point margin, say the voters, which is a higher priority for the Congress-Republicans, the protection of the US elections from outside interference, instead of “standing with President Trump” (47-38 percent).

There is even more to believe Democrats ” motifs. By a 20-point margin, the thinking of voters, the priority for Democrats in Congress is to protect the elections in the country, “President Trump look bad” (53-33 percent).


Trust in U.S. intelligence services, but has a punch. In June, 74 percent were at least somewhat confident that the agencies of Russia, or any other of hacking in US-election-systems. In the survey, released on Wednesday, only 60 percent feel that way, too.

Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats told a congressional Committee on Tuesday that he has already seen evidence Russia is aiming for the U.S. mid-term elections.

There is also less trust, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the White house is pretty in the Russian interference in the investigation. This is down to 66 percent from 73 percent in June.

From a 23-point margin, more voters 56 percent) reject (than approve (33 percent), as President of the trump card is the handling of the investigation into the Russian participation in the election of 2016. He was under the water by 16 points in the last of June 2017.

Republicans are twice as likely to disapprove of President Trump of Russia (25 percent) as they displease you, his performance as a whole (12 percent).

In General, the majority of voters confidence in the FBI, with 73 per cent a great deal (30 percent) or confidence (43 per cent). But that’s compared with 80 percent a year ago (February 2017).

The drop comes entirely from Republicans: 87 percent had much or some confidence in the FBI in the last year, compared to 65 percent today. At the same time, the trust kept stable between the Democrats and went to a couple of points among the independents.

A memo from Republicans on the house Intelligence Committee accused the FBI of attacks in Russia, the investigation was published on 2. February.

The survey also asks voters about their confidence in other institutions.

The armed forces are coming far ahead of all others: 92 percent have confidence in the military. Majorities have confidence in the Supreme court (76 percent), the FBI (73 percent), the CIA (70 percent), municipalities (70 percent), the exchange (63 percent), the IRS (62 percent) and large companies (60 percent).

Majorities do not have enough trust in the media (51% not much/no trust), Donald Trump (53 percent), and Congress (54 percent).
