Many Americans say lawmakers should investigate whether President Donald Trump or anyone on his presidential campaign team communicated with the Russian government ahead of the election, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Fifty-three percent of Americans say they want Congress to probe any possible ties while 25 percent disagree. Twenty-one percent say they don’t have an opinion either way.

The poll was conducted February 18-22.

The CIA and FBI last year laid out a judgment that Russia interfered in the election with the intent to get Trump elected and harm Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s electability and potential presidency.

Fifty-four percent of people polled by NBC and the Wall Street Journal believe that Congress should investigate that assessment, with 29 percent disagreeing.
