A new CBS News poll finds a slight majority of Americans thinks that special counsel Robert Muerller’s investigation is politically motivated, 53% to 44%.
“The shift reveals a hardening stance among Republicans, who are now even more critical of the investigation. While a large majority of Republicans has always seen the investigation as politically motivated, the percentage that thinks so has risen seven points since December. There is an even larger shift when it comes to whether Republicans think Mr. Trump should cooperate with the special counsel. In January, 73% said he should cooperate, but now just 53% do.”
