  • 48 percent say they are more likely to back a congressional candidate who promises to provide a check on Trump. 23 percent say they are less likely to support that type of candidate
  • 22 percent say healthcare is the top midterm issue, followed by the economy and jobs at 19 percent and guns at 13 percent
  • 45 percent say they are less likely to back a candidate who favors House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for House Speaker, compared to 21 percent who would back that type of candidate
  • 37 percent believe Trump’s campaign did collude or work secretly with Russia., compared to 34 percent who disagree. 28 percent say they did not know enough to say
  • 53 percent say they have "some" or a "great deal" of confidence in special counsel Robert Mueller carrying through with a fair investigation. 40 percent had little or confidence in Mueller.

The poll, which was conducted June 1-4, surveyed 900 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.
