60% of Americans Say Trump Was Dishonest in Handling of Mueller Probe (Paste Magazine link): A new poll from the Wall Street Journal and NBC reveals that the majority of Americans think our president was not honest in how he’s dealt with the Mueller investigation. 60% believe that Donald Trump was dishonest in his handling of the Russia probe, while 37% say that Mr. Cheats At Golf himself was honest about it.
The 52-page-long survey, which was conducted by a bipartisan group of pollsters between May 11 and May 14, asked people’s opinions on a variety of subjects, such as President Trump’s likability, the economy, the White House’s relationship with North Korea and the handling of the Russia investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller and by Attorney General William Barr.
Between Trump and Mueller, 45% said they trusted the special counsel, 27% said the president, 6% said both, 16% said neither, and 6% didn’t know.
Between Mueller and Barr, 40% said they trusted the special counsel, 22% said the attorney general, 8% said both, 16% said neither, and 14% didn’t know.
Between congressional Democrats and the Trump administration, 44% said they trusted the Democrats, 33%, said the White House, 3% said both, 15% said neither, and 5% didn’t know. When respondents were asked about how Barr handled the Mueller report, the attorney general didn’t fare so well: 44% approved, while 35% disapproved. And by an even larger margin, they were weary of Barr’s true intentions.
