Forty-seven percent of Republicans voters believe no one on President Donald Trump's campaign committed any crimes, according to a poll conducted by HuffPost and YouGov.

The survey was conducted April 18-19, one day after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.  

Mueller, who turned in his report to Attorney General William Barr on March 23, neither charged nor exonerated Trump on obstruction of justice charges and also said neither Trump nor his campaign conspired with Russia to win the 2016 campaign.

But the Mueller report states "the president's efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests."

The poll also found:

  • 61% of Republicans think the Trump campaign's relationship is not a problem at all.
  • 45% of Republicans strongly approve of the job Attorney General William Barr is doing, compared with 45% of Democrats who strongly disapprove.
  • 81% of Republicans do not believe Trump attempted to obstruct justice, while 78% of Democrats say he did.

The HuffPost/YouGov poll was conducted April 18-19 among 1,000 registered voters and has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
