Most Americans say senior Trump officials probably had 'improper' contact with Russian Federation

Most Americans say senior Trump officials probably had 'improper' contact with Russian Federation

Around half of Americans (48%) believe that the investigation into dealings between Trump associates and Russian Federation is politically motivated, as shown by a poll conducted by SSRS of Glen Mills, PA on behalf of CBS News.

According to the Pew poll, 68 percent of Democrats and 44 percent of Republicans say they are at least somewhat confident Mueller will conduct a fair investigation.

The partisan lines are less pronounced with regard to the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's Russian Federation probe, though they are still present.

Only 26 percent of Republican or Republican-leaning respondents said that they believed Trump officials either definitely or probably had improper contacts with Moscow during the campaign. About a quarter of conservatives said that the officials likely had improper contacts, while more than 80 percent of liberals did.

Democrats and Republicans were starkly divided in their beliefs on the issue.

The center conducted the survey as former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn was pleading guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his conversations with Russia's ambassador in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of potential ties between the campaign and Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential election.

Pew's report on the poll noted that Trump's approval rating has been fairly stagnant since October, when it was at 34%, but has decreased since February, when it was 39%.

Though the decline was not as steep, Trump's approval rating also dropped among adults 50 and older (from 47 percent to 38 percent) as well as among whites (49 percent to 41 percent).
