Many Americans are starting to realize that the investigation of Robert Mueller into every aspect of President Donald Trump’s life is a witch hunt.
And a new Drudge poll shows that two-thirds of respondents want his probe ended and Mueller fired.
Mueller was hired to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and to find out if President Trump’s campaign was a part of it.
But now Mueller has subpoenaed documents from President Trump’s businesses, which the president has called a red line in the past.
The poll also comes a day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on the recommendation of the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility.
The recommendation came when the OPR said that McCabe lied in testimony, a charge that now has every case he has worked on, including the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Russia investigation, in jeopardy.
The Poll’s Accuracy.
The Drudge poll was conducted on its website and cannot be considered a scientific poll.
But of the more than 500,000 respondents, 408,216 said that Mueller should be fired. That represents 76 percent of those who took the survey.
And 126,664, 26 percent, said that Mueller should stay on the job.
Drudge is a conservative website and it could be easy for some to dismiss the poll and just another website poll. But Drudge polls have been a strong barometer of American thought in the past.
Particularly during the 2016 presidential election campaign when, before anyone gave President Trump a chance, Drudge readers said he won the Republican primary debate.
“Donald Trump was by far the favorite choice among readers of the influential Drudge Report after Wednesday night’s Republican presidential debate,” The Washington Examiner wrote.
“Drudge posted a poll at the top of its site at the start of the debate, which was hosted by CNN and lasted three hours, for visitors to vote on ‘who won.’
“By the end of the event, Trump, who is number one in the Washington Examiner’s presidential power rankings, received 61 percent of votes. At a distant second place with 14 percent was Carly Fiorina. In third, Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul tied with 6 percent.”
