The narrative around the Russia probe has completely changed and very quickly. Now that the Mueller Investigation is over and found no collusion, a majority of Americans believe it was politically motivated.
The Daily Wire reports:
After Mueller Finds No Collusion, Americans Now Believe Russia Probe Was ‘Politically Motivated’
A majority of Americans now believe that the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election was “politically motivated,” a sharp increase from when the poll was last conducted in January – before the investigation was completed.
The news comes from a recent CBS News poll, conducted between March 25 and March 26, which found 54% of respondents believe the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was “politically motivated,” compared to 37% who believe it was “justified.”
The poll was previously conducted in January and, at that time, found 50% of respondents believed the investigation was “justified” and 45% said it was “politically motivated.”
While this appears to be the biggest nugget of information from the poll, it was not the hook CBS used to report on its own poll. In fact, it was the last point mentioned in the media outlet’s report on the poll, and while every other point in the article received its own tweet, the information about whether the probe was justified or politically motivated did not.
This is great news for Trump just as the 2020 campaign is about to go into full swing.

CBS Poll: Majority Of Americans Believe Russia Probe Was Politically Motivated
A recent CBS poll shows that a majority of Americans believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion between President Donald J. Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russian authorities in order to win the presidency was “politically motivated” against President Trump.
As pointed out by elections analyst and writer for Etholytics, Bruce Stanford, a poll by CBS taken March 25-26 shows that 54% of all Americans believe that the Russian collusion probe was “politically motivated.”
