More than half of voters think special counsel Robert Mueller has a conflict of interest because of his past working relationship with former FBI Director James Comey, according to a new survey.

Key results from the December Harvard CAPS-Harris survey:

  • 54 percent think Mueller, who is leading the Department of Justice's Russia investigation, has a conflict of interest because of his ties to Comey.
  • 72 percent of conservatives and 53 percent of Independents think a conflict of interest exists.
  • 65 percent said they have heard of Mueller.
  • 34 percent hold a favorable or very favorable view of Mueller, while 31 percent hold an unfavorable or very unfavorable view of him.

Mueller's Russia probe has resulted in four indictments — former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Manafort's business associate Rick Gates, former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The investigation originally began looking at whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

It was revealed this week members of Mueller's team exchanged hundreds of anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 presidential campaign.
