The public is recoiling at Trumps contempt for the rule of law

But the new Post/ABC poll represents a major public vote of confidence in the investigation ó and a major repudiation of Trumpís delegitimization of it as a mere ďwitch hunt.Ē It finds that 69 percent of Americans support Muellerís efforts to investigate possible Russia-Trump campaign collusion, and 64 percent support Muellerís investigation of Trumpís business activities, which, you may recall, Trump declared as a red line that Mueller mustnít cross. It even finds that 58 percent support Muellerís investigation of hush money paid to women who alleged affairs.

What about public attitudes toward Comey? Well, the poll finds that Americans see Comey as more believable than Trump by 48-32 and disapprove of Trumpís firing of Comey by 47-33. Those numbers arenít that high for Comey, but they are shockingly low for Trump.



The public is recoiling at Trumpís contempt for the rule of law

Itís tempting to see this polling as little more than a reflection of Trumpís deep unpopularity. But numbers this stark suggest something else may be going on: that the depth of Trumpís contempt for our institutions and the rule of law is becoming clear to the public, and Americans are recoiling at it.

1. How come when Sanders stands up there & lies about how the public is behind Trump on this as well as

 

other polling none of the WH Press Corps asks her what polling is she citing or where is she getting her info on the things she says most of the country supports.

Those briefings are pretty useless.

2. They need to vote that way in November, or else it's meaningless.

I hope the voters will do the right thing and put some checks and balances on these freaks, but there's no telling. They might tell pollsters all day long how concerned they are, but still vote for *their* Republican Congressman or Senator.
