The vast majority of American voters want special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian election interference to be released to the public, according to a poll from Quinnipiac University released Tuesday.
Mueller completed his report and submitted it to Attorney General William Barr last Friday. Barr later released a four-page summary of Mueller’s findings, but Quinnipiac found that more than four-in-five registered voters want the report made public.
- 84 percent want Mueller’s report released to the public
- 9 percent say it should not be released
- Republicans support releasing the report, 75 percent to 17 percent
- Democrats support releasing the report, 93 percent to 4 percent
- Independents support releasing the report, 86 percent to 8 percent
Most voters, 55 percent, said that Mueller conducted a “fair” investigation, while just over a quarter, 26 percent, thought it was unfair.
“We want to know more, say voters who have read the bullet points and believe the Mueller investigation was fair, but would like to read it in full,” Tim Malloy, Quinnipiac University Poll assistant director, said in a press release.
“But was it a witch hunt? That remains the stuff of dinner table discussion. A stunningly sharp divide, as men say the investigation was a witch hunt and women say it was legit.”
- 43 percent of men said the Mueller investigation was legitimate, 50 said it was a witch hunt.
- 55 percent of women said it was legitimate, 37 think it was a witch hunt.
Quinnipiac surveyed 1,358 registered voters across the country from March 21-25. The poll has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
