Voters send strong message about “Trump-Russia collusion”

A new poll has come out, and it seems that a majority of American voters are sick of the Trump-Russia investigation and are ready for Congress to get back to other important issues, like health care, national security, and the economy.

It’s a pretty safe bet the Trump administration is also ready to shift focus and get back to work passing his agenda for our country.

According to The Hill:

A majority of voters believe the Russia investigations are damaging to the country and are eager to see Congress shift its focus to healthcare, terrorism, national security, the economy and jobs.

Those are the findings of the latest Harvard-Harris Poll survey, provided exclusively to The Hill, which paints a complicated picture of voters’ opinions about the numerous probes that have engulfed the White House.

Sixty-four percent of voters said the investigations into President Trump and Russia are hurting the country. Fifty-six percent of voters said it’s time for Congress and the media to move on to other issues, compared to 44 percent who said the focus should stay on Russia.

But other surveys have found strong support for the special counsel investigating the Russia probe. A Harvard-Harris survey released last month found 75 percent support for former FBI Director Robert Mueller’s investigation.

There is evidence in the Harvard-Harris survey that voters are taking the investigations seriously: Fifty-eight percent say they’re concerned by allegations of obstruction of justice against Trump, with the same number worried about possible dealings between Trump and the Russian government.

But far more — 73 percent — say they’re concerned that the Russia probes have caused Congress to lose focus on the issues important to them. That figure encompasses 81 percent of Republicans, 74 percent of independents and 68 percent of Democrats.

“While the voters have a keen interest in any Russian election interference, they are concerned that the investigations have become a distraction for the president and Congress that is hurting rather than helping the country,” said Harvard-Harris co-director Mark Penn. “Most voters believe that the president’s actions don’t rise to the level of impeachable offenses, even if some of them were inappropriate.”

The poll was conducted between June 19 and June 21, with 2,237 voters being surveyed.

With the glaring lack of evidence connecting Trump with Russia, the continual witch hunts by the left are definitely growing tiresome, and it seems most Americans agree with tha sentiment.

If evidence existed to suggest some sort of collusion to rig the election, wouldn’t someone chomping at the bit to get Trump out of office have come giddily running forward with it by now?

While the government is wasting resources on this investigation, folks are still struggling paycheck to paycheck, terrorists are still plotting our destruction, and the cost of health insurance remains unbearably high.

If only those issues were a top priority for Democrats, perhaps they’d actually win elections?
