(POLL) Most voters: Special counsel probe of Trump is politically motivated

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland

Even though most voters approve the appointment of a special counsel to investigate former President Donald Trump, an even larger majority think politics is behind the probe.

That’s according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.

The national survey found that 50% of likely U.S. voters approve of Attorney General Merrick Garland’s decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate Trump, including 33% who “strongly approved.”

Forty-three percent (43%) disapproved, including 32% who “strongly disapproved” of the appointment of a special counsel.

Garland appointed former federal prosecutor Jack Smith to determine whether former Trump will face charges in connection with his attempts to reverse the 2020 presidential election or his retention of government documents at his Florida home.

Sixty-one percent (61%) of voters think it’s likely that the special counsel investigation of Trump is politically motivated, including 44% who think a political motive is “very likely.”

Thirty-four percent (34%) don’t think it is likely that the Trump investigation is politically motivated, including 19% who say it is “not at all likely.”

  1. Herein lies a problem; 61% believe it is politically motivated yet 50% approve of appointing a special counsel. DOJ prosecutions should NEVER be politicized.
    We should ask why those 11% approve of a politicized investigation.
    After the politically biased Mueller investigation, in what was known from the start to be bogus, why are people still willing to spend millions in taxpayer money on a one sided investigation!

  2. What more can they possibly investigate? There are people in DC who are crying to be investigated. Wasting our money on investigating this man, yet again is ludicrous.

  3. Half the population are controlled by the corporate media and they like it that way. It is more important for them to have an object of hatred (Donald Trump) than to face the fact that they can’t handle self-governance.

    Unrelated: How is Merrick Garland different from (better than) Heinrich Himmler? I’ll wait.
