About half of American voters believe Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe will end in 2018 without ensnaring Donald Trump.
A new Morning Consult poll conducted for Politico found 49 per cent say it’s ‘likely’ the president will be exonerated of any wrongdoing.
That’s compared with just 37 per cent who disagree.
Mueller is helming an investigation into as-yet unproven allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to swing the 2016 election in his favor.
Trump has insisted repeatedly that ‘there was no collusion,’ privately blaming the mess on Democrats and reporters who are intent on throwing a monkey-wrench into his administration.
He has also faulted Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia probe – giving his political opponents a reason to insist on a special counsel to run the probe.
