A NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that most Americans think Congress should further investigate to learn if the Russian government interfered with the recent presidential election and if there was contact between individuals in the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
Roughly 54 percent of people surveyed agreed a more thorough investigation should be conducted on both fronts, with a plurality of respondents (38 percent) now also acknowledging that they feel Trump is “too friendly” with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Despite Trump recently dismissing all the clamor surrounding the two world leaders’ relationship as a “witch hunt,” pollsters also found the percentage of respondents who now feel more needs to be known about it has risen from 31 to 38 percent.
At the same time, the percentage of respondents who previously stated they were undecided on the issue has declined from 44 to just 32 percent.
Comparatively speaking, only 29 percent of those polled said they don’t feel the Trump/Putin relationship is too friendly.
