After Rep. Devin Nunes’ stunt this week, I’m sure the numbers could get higher.

In a Quinnipiac poll released earlier today, it appears that Americans don’t trust the committee that Nunes chairs, the House Intelligence Committee, to get to the bottom of any potential ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.


According to a Quinnipiac University survey released on Friday, 66 percent of voters favor an independent commission while 29 percent do not.

Similarly, 65 percent of voters consider Russian interference in the 2016 election a “very important” or “somewhat important” issue.

The poll also found that 63 percent of Americans are “somewhat” or “very” concerned about the president’s relationship with Moscow.

Because everything surrounding this feels corrupted, and no one knows who to trust.

Further, 59 percent of those polled disapprove of how Trump is guiding Washington’s policy toward Russia.

When broken down to party, 61 percent of Republicans approve of the administration’s view of Russia, while 20 percent do not.

There were 1,056 participants in the survey, and it has a 3 percent margin of error.
