A CNN exit poll shows that a clear majority of 54 percent of Americans see the Russian investigation as politically motivated, while only 41 percent disagree.
Voters have also soured on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s handing of the investigation. Only 41 percent approve, while a plurality of 46 percent disapprove.
What’s remarkable about these numbers is that they from an electorate that wanted Democrats to win control of the House by an eight point margin, 54 percent to 44 percent — an electorate that went for Hillary Clinton over Trump by three points, 43 percent to 40 percent.
