A new poll shows that more than three out of 10 Democratic voters think Congress should stop investigating Russian election interference and the Mueller report, The Hill reports.

  • 60% of all voters think Congress should focus on policy, not investigations.
  • 40% of all voters think Congress should continue investigating.
  • 37% of Democratic voters want Congress to end its Russia-related investigations and focus on policies like healthcare, immigration and infrastructure development.
  • 63% said that Congress should continue investigating Russia, special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, and President Donald Trump.
  • 61% of independent voters think Congress should move on.
  • 86% of Republican voters think Congress should end its investigations.

"Democrats are really between a rock and a hard place right now — the rock being their base, that 40 percent who says, 'Yes, go after the guy' — and the hard place being those independents who they have to convince in the general election that they've done something other than go after the president," Republican pollster and political consultant B.J. Martino said Thursday on Hill.TV's "What America's Thinking."

"Even though legislators can multitask, the media really doesn't in terms of their focus and what they report on what Democrats are doing," he added. "If Democrats are embroiled in hearing after hearing, what do you think is going to lead the news?"

HarrisX polled 2,004 registered voters online from April 19-21, with a margin of error of +/- 2.2 percentage points.
