Although President Donald Trump continues to insist that the Russia investigation, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, is a "witch hunt," most Americans do believe that Trump has committed a criminal act.
According to an Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll released on Friday, almost three out of five Americans (58 percent) say they believe Trump has obstructed justice during the investigation. Forty percent don't believe he's done something wrong.
The results of the polling on that question are markedly divisive, with very few respondents — just 3 percent — saying they don't have an opinion or don't know whether Trump obstructed the investigation or not.
The poll asked several more questions on topics related to the inquiry, including whether Americans held the belief that Trump conducted himself in an illegal or improper manner with regards to Russia during or before the election. Thirty-eight percent say that Trump's interactions with Moscow were illegal, while 34 percent stated that they believed Trump's actions were improper but not illegal. A quarter of respondents said that Trump did absolutely nothing wrong.
On the question of impeachment, the poll asked the question in a way most other polls haven't yet. Recent polling from a Politico/Morning Consult poll, for example, showed that 51 percent of Americans don't think Trump deserves to be impeached at this time.
