POLL: Most Americans believe Obama improperly surveilled Trump

FEBRUARY 10, 2018

Despite more than a year of relentless propaganda perpetrated by Democrats and the liberal-leaning mainstream media, a new poll from IBD/TIPP shows that “Americans overwhelmingly believe the Obama administration ‘improperly surveilled’ Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.”

According to the data, 55 percent of Americans now believe it is “likely” that the Obama administration “improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.”

Americans who believe Obama played dirty during the election include:

  • 31 percent of Democrats
  • 87 percent of Republicans
  • 55 percent of Independents.

And 54 percent want a special counsel to investigate “whether the FBI and the Department of Justice improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.”

Only 35 percent believe that the FBI and Justice Department attempted to outright frame Trump for colluding with the Russians.

newly-released Rasmussen poll shows that 50 percent of Americans “believe it’s at least somewhat likely senior federal law enforcement officials broke the law in an effort to prevent Donald Trump from winning the presidency.” Only 40 percent disagree.

Another Rasmussen poll from this week shows that only 42 percent of Americans believe Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election more than the FBI. Moreover, a full 34 percent believe the FBI meddled more than the Russians, while 24 percent are unsure.
