73% want US election inquiry v Russia

A clear majority of Americans want an independent, non-partisan commission instead of Congress to investigate Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

NBC News: 73% Back Independent Probe of Russian Election Interference

Seventy-three percent of respondents prefer the independent investigation, versus 16 percent who pick Congress.

Still, a majority of Americans — 54 percent — believe that Congress should investigate whether there was contact between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, which is essentially unchanged from February’s NBC/WSJ poll.

That’s clear majorities for all but Republicans.

The NBC/WSJ poll was conducted April 17-20 of 900 adults, including more than 400 who were reached via cell phone. The poll has an overall margin of error of plus-minus 3.3 percentage points.

    This kind of poll result depends entirely on how the questions are phrased and what context they are given. I’d take it with a couple of grains of salt until that was clarified.

    When are these poor deluded fools going to give this one up. You’ve got the best political predictor in the history of earth calling bullshit on your daft polls. Let it go boys. Move on…

    The magic word is ‘respondents’. That will mean whatever you want it to – even a list supplied by people with an agenda. In its favour it was a large survey because 900 is, like, such a big number.

    And on and on and on and on and on it goes. As the comments above set out. When you want support for a position craft a questionnaire that guides people to you desired outcome and then poll…

      It’s too big an issue to dismiss, tired as one is of hearing about it. if one country supposedly interferes in another’s election, that has to be investigated and the truth known, one way or the other….as long as they don’t keep blahing on about. Just do it and publish the results, don’t faff around.
