Fifty-two percent of Americans surveyed in a poll conducted after James Comey was fired as FBI director said they had a positive view of the agency.

In the poll, conducted May 11-13 by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal two days after President Donald Trump hastily fired Comey, voters were asked whether they had a positive or negative view of the FBI. The 52 percent shows that Americans see the agency more positively than they have since at least 1995, reports the Washington Post.

Only 18 percent said they had a positive view of Comey, while 26 percent said their view of him was negative. Trump got an undesirable score, too, with 52 percent saying they had a negative view of the president – 38 percent said they saw him in a positive light.

The NBC/WSJ poll queried 800 adults.
