The Polling Report – Americans want to see the Mueller Report

A new Quinnipiac poll finds that 84% of voters think that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report should be made public, while just 9% disagree.

Republicans agree by a 75% to 17% margin and every other listed party, gender, education, age and racial group supports making the report public by even wider margins.

A new Politico/Morning Consult survey finds President Trump’s net approval rating was 42% to 55% — 13 points underwater, the same as last week — in the first survey conducted after the release of a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings.

The poll shows a plurality of voters, 47%, think Trump “tried to impede or obstruct the investigation into whether his campaign had ties to Russia” — despite the fact that Mueller didn’t reach a decision on the question, while 39% don’t think Trump tried to impede the investigation.

A new Firehouse Strategies (R) survey finds President Trump’s approval underwater in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin — vital states from his 2016 map that form Dems’ most likely path to 270.

Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders all currently beat Trump head-to-head in Wisconsin, but Trump would defeat all three in Michigan. Pennsylvania offers a split: The polling shows only Biden can beat Trump there.

Politico: “Democratic presidential candidates are on a white-knuckle ride to March 31, the quarterly reporting deadline that will signal who’s rolling in cash and who’s scraping just to establish viability.”

“All too conscious that the numbers they report will be viewed as either a show of strength or the first sign of weakness, the campaigns are furiously chasing dollars to bulk up their totals, while quietly managing expectations behind the scenes with staffers, supporters and the media.”

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.

  1. Spoiler: we’re never going to see the Mueller report.

    Unless it’s released after trump is defeated in an election, then forcibly removed from office by, hopefully a still loyal military.
    I am 100000000% loathe to agree with delcrat on this, but it’s time to forget about the treason committed by trmp and crew to win the 2016 election. Forget about fighting a battle that was lost in 2016. it’s over.
    Anyone still holding out hope that more than 1 or 2 republicans will ever break with their God is a fucking fool. It’s obvious now they would all take a bullet for him. The alternative is him releasing the fury of MAGATry on them.

    So screw it. Beat him up on the ACA that’s about to disappear in his magat courts. Go after all the jobs he isnt creating or the likely recession that’ll be in full swing by next summer. But the cover-up has happened. The Coup was a success. Fighting it only feeds a narrative that JUST enough Americans will buy.
    This nation isnt liberal or progressive activists and bloggers. It’s people who only pay a little bit of attention and arent all that smart. Not saying we need to “speak to the white working class” Fuck them. If they need to be hand-held to vote against fascism, they’re probably confederates anyway and need a visit from Billy Sherman. But people, in general, care more about health care and personal financial stability than the skull duggery of politics… even if one is influenced by the other. again… people arent that smart.

    Sure, a majority of Americans “want to see it”. That will shrink as MAGATs are convinced they’ve seen enough. Before it was released, they wanted the whole report to prove how biased and unfair it was. Now that they’ve been given their maching orders not to care, 34% of the country will do what cultists do.
