Poll: Majority Disagree With FBI Decision Not to Charge Hillary Clinton
According to a new Washington Post/ ABC News poll, a majority of Americans believe that the FBI should have recommended charges against Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
56 percent of respondents disapproved of FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation not to charge Clinton over her use of an unauthorized private server, while only 35 percent approved. Likewise, 57 percent said the incident makes them worried about how Clinton might act as president (including 43 percent who say it makes them “very worried”), while just 39 percent say they don’t think it matters.
Unsurprisingly, the results fall along partisan lines. 90 percent of Republicans said they think Clinton should have been charged compared to only 30 percent of Democrats.
28 percent said the outcome of the email investigation has made them less likely to vote for Clinton, while 10 percent said it makes them more likely to vote for Clinton. But the majority of Americans, 58 percent, say it doesn’t make any difference in their vote.
