A new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that 49 percent of Americans believe Donald Trump committed a crime in connection with Russian attempts to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
ABC News: “The poll finds substantial support for the investigation, with 58 percent approving of how special counsel Robert Mueller is handling it, and more – 68 percent – approving of the filling of federal charges against Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and one of his associates.”
Moreover, just 37 percent think Trump is cooperating with the investigation; many more, 51 percent, say he’s not cooperating, and another sizable share, 12 percent, have no opinion. And 49 percent of Americans think it’s likely that Trump himself committed a crime in connection with possible Russian attempts to influence the election. Slightly fewer, 44 percent, call this unlikely.
