When Washington spends our money, rarely do we get a great return on our investment, and that seems to be how most Americans view former special counsel Robert Mueller’s months-long probe of “Russian collusion.”
According to a new survey by Rasmussen Reports, 55 percent of likely voters surveyed said the $25 million spent on the probe was a lousy return on taxpayers’ investment, which was more than double the number who said it was money well-spent.
Also, while half of likely voters said they were satisfied with Muellerâ€™s findings, only 36 percent said they were not — meaning a plurality of AmericansÂ still believe that POTUS Donald Trump ‘colluded’ with Mother Russia to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton.
Interestingly, just over half of those surveyed — 53 percent — found Mueller’s effort to be ‘honest,’ while 36 percent called it a “partisan witch hunt.” Eleven percent had no opinion.
“Voters generally approve of Special Counsel Robert Muellerâ€™s report exonerating President Trump, although Republicans are more critical than ever of his probe and Democrats arenâ€™t as happy about Mueller as they used to be,” Rasmussen reported.
