On Wednesday, Rasmussen reported that 49 percent of likely voters indicated they want a special prosecutor named to investigate the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to see if the nation’s top cops have been playing politics.
According to Rasmussen:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters believe a special prosecutor should be named to investigate whether senior FBI officials handled the investigation of Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump in a legal and unbiased fashion. Thirty-one percent (31%) disagree, but a sizable 19% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Sixty-two percent (62%) of Republicans are calling for an outside prosecutor to investigate the FBI, as is a plurality (49%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party. Among Democrats, 38% favor a special prosecutor; 40% are opposed, but 22% are undecided.
That poll was conducted prior to news that the Department of Justice found a number of text messages sent between anti-Trump FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Given that breaking and potentially explosive report, we can’t help but wonder how many now think a special prosecutor should be named.
