It must be poll day at Sparta Report, as yet another report shows support for the Mueller investigation declining. This should not surprise anyone, as the investigation has gone on for two years without producing any results in the face of generally positive poll numbers for the president.
It’s increasingly unlikely the investigation will be going anywhere with these kinds of dropping numbers:
As President Trump’s approval rating rises (despite the ‘resistance’ best efforts), Americans are losing support for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Mueller oversees the investigation into Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, and he also examines whether the Russian government worked with Trump during the election. The special counsel investigation began when President Trump fired former FBI director James Comey.
As Statista’s Sarah Feldman notes, Mueller’s inquiry has been going on for over a year now.
The excuses to not shut down the investigation are rapidly disappearing, so Trump’s continued inaction on this front baffles me. It’s clear by now after two years of relentless media attacks that shutting down the investigation won’t harm Trump’s poll numbers. The investigation is unpopular with the public, and getting less popular by the day.
So why the wait?
