President Donald Trump should not fire special counsel Robert Mueller, the majority of Americans said in a new poll released Tuesday.
The Quinnipiac University Poll found that about five times as many voters said Trump should not fire Mueller than said he should.
- 69 percent said to not fire Mueller.
- 13 percent said fire Mueller.
Among Republicans, support for Mueller is less forthcoming:
- 55 percent said to not fire Mueller.
- 22 percent said to fire Mueller.
Additionally, most voters think Mueller's investigation is "fair," although that number has fallen to its lowest point since the question was first asked in November.
- 52 percent said probe is "fair."
- 32 percent disagree.
"American voters in huge numbers, including a majority of Republicans, tell President Donald Trump: Keep your hands off special counsel Robert Mueller," Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement.
The Quinnipiac University Poll surveyed 1,181 registered voters across the country from April 6-9, with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points.
