Republicans have begun to sour on Robert Mueller’s handling of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, and they are increasingly likely to say the President should not testify under oath for the special counsel.
Overall, 44% approve of the way Mueller is handling the investigation and 38% disapprove. That’s a slight negative shift overall since March, when 48% approved of Mueller’s work. Just about all of that change has come from Republicans, who now give Mueller a 17% approval rating, down from 29% in March. Among Democrats and independents, approval ratings for Mueller have not changed significantly.
