A majority of Americans believe Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and then campaign manager Paul Manafort should have refused to take the meeting with a Russian lawyer in 2016, according to a CNN poll released Friday.

The results, according to the survey:

  • 57 percent said the group should not have taken the meeting, while 23 percent said they should have, and 18 percent of voters are undecided. 
  • 36 percent of Republicans said they should not have taken the meeting, 48 percent said he should have, while 14 percent of Republicans are undecided.
  • 83 percent of Democrats said they should not have taken the meeting, only 6 percent said they should, while 10 percent are undecided. 
  • 55 percent of independent voters said they should not have taken the meeting, 22 percent said they should have, while 21 percent are undecided. 

When asked whether Americans were concerned about reports that Trump campaign members had been in contact with Russian operatives during the presidential campaign.

  • Very concerned: 27 percent.
  • Somewhat concerned: 22 percent.
  • Not too concerned: 16 percent.
  • Not at all concerned: 33 percent.
  • Don't know or undecided: 3 percent.

Looking at the results by party affiliation, the most stark difference is between Republicans and Democrats about their concern level: 55 percent of Republicans said they were not at all concerned about the contact with Russians, while only 9 percent of Democrats said they were not concerned.

Concern over Russian contact has decreased since a CNN/ORC poll in early March, according to CNN. 

Overall, that number has declined 6 percentage points since March. Democrats and independent voters are 11 percent less concerned than in March, the CNN report said.

The poll was conducted from July 14 to July 18 in a random sampling of 1,019 adults, with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.7 points.
