64% THINK FBI KNEW THE DOSSIER WAS UNRELIABLE WHEN THEY APPLIED FOR SEARCH WARRANT AGAINST TRUMP CAMPAIGN
Sixty-four percent (64%) of voters believe the FBI knew a controversial dossier was unreliable when they used it to obtain a search warrant against President Trump’s 2016 campaign. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that skepticism is shared by 86% of Republicans, 64% of Independents, and 47% of Democrats (see crosstab results).
OK, it's true that people are still a bit muddled:
Forty-nine percent (49%) favor having the Department of Justice investigate whether the FBI illegally spied on the Trump campaign. Twenty-nine percent (29%) are opposed and 22% are not sure. Support for an investigation comes from 64% of Republicans, 52% of Independents, and 34% of Democrats.
Just 34% of voters know that the compilation of the dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Thirty-five percent (35%) of voters believe the FBI illegally spied on the Trump campaign while 33% say it did not. Thirty-two percent (32%) are not sure. The number who are confident the FBI did not spy illegally has fallen six points in recent weeks.
But really, I think this is pretty good. It's big picture stuff. Not a single indictment yet, but 64% seem to have a handle on a basic idea. The other numbers will come around.
But, two questions:
1. What makes the Left think they control the flow of information?
2. With polling like this, what makes the Left think that all impeachment all the time is a good idea?
