Poll Reveals Americans Do Not Believe Stories about "Russian Investigation"
A new poll shows most voters are growing tired of the allegations of collusion with Russian officials made against the Trump administration, reported The Blaze.
According to the most recent Harvard-Harris Poll, 56 percent of voters said they want Congress and the media to move on from the Russian investigation. Sixty-two percent of respondents said they believe the investigations will lead to the end of the "Russia inquiry".
Additionally, 64 percent of the voters in the poll said they believe "the investigations into Russia and President Trump" are "hurting the country".
The survey was conducted June 19-21 and included responses from 2,237 American adults who say they vote. When asked which political affiliation they "usually" identify with, 35 percent of respondents said Democrat, 30 percent said independent, 29 percent said Republican, and 6 percent said "other".
Meanwhile after a rocky May, Trump’s approval ratings have steadily improved as Democrats have been unable to show any evidence of their claims about Trump and Russia. The Real Clear Politics average of polls – which includes polls that survey all Americans, not just voters – showed Trump’s approval rating throughout most of May and early June to be below 40 percent, bottoming out at 38,6 on June 13. Since then, Trump’s average approval rating has consistently risen. It’s currently sitting at 40, 6 percent.
