NBC/WSJ Poll: 62 Percent Say Trump Is Lying About Russia

By    |   Sunday, 16 December 2018 10:44 AM

Just 34 percent of American adults believe President Donald Trump has been "honest and truthful" about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into 2016 election meddling and potential coordinator between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll revealed.

An overwhelming majority in the poll, 62 percent, believe President Trump has not been "honest and truthful." But this is still decidedly a partisan issue.

Much of that number is because of Democrats supporting the narrative, however, as 94 percent of American Democrats believe he has not been honest and truth. Just 24 percent of American Republicans doubt the president, while 64 percent of Independents do.

Trust in the president is overwhelming highest among Republicans (70 percent), while just 5 percent of Democrats believe he is being honest and truthful.

"Last week's [Michael] Cohen and [Paul] Manafort news clearly hurt the president — no dramatic movement to be sure, but incremental erosion in President Trump's credibility," Democrat pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates told NBC News.

Among other results in the poll related to Russia, which has proven to be a successful campaign to sow discord against President Trump:

  • A combined 50 percent of Americans say the investigation has given them: "major," "fairly major," or "just some" doubts about the Trump administration.
  • 44 percent, ostensibly the size of President Trump's base, according to Republican pollster Bill McInturff, say it has not given them doubts.
  • 46 percent say the convictions and guilty pleas of members of Trump's 2016 campaign suggest potential wrongdoing by the president
  • Just 23 percent believe the wrongdoing is limited only to those individuals, while 28 percent do not know enough to say.
