The liberal media has been incessantly pushing the narrative that President Donald Trump colluded with Russian officials before and after the 2016 presidential election, but a recent poll showed that Americans aren’t on the same page.
In fact, a majority of American voters said that congressional investigations into alleged Russian interference have hurt the country by taking lawmakers away from other important issues, according to the latest Harvard-Harris Poll survey.
The survey found that 64 percent of those polled believed the Russia probes were damaging to the nation, while 56 percent also wanted Congress and the media to focus on other issues, such as terrorism, health care, the economy, national security and jobs.
An even more impressive 73 percent said they were concerned that the investigations have caused Congress to lose focus on other important issues — a sentiment that was surprisingly bipartisan, as the figure encompassed 81 percent of Republican, 74 percent of independents and 68 percent of Democrats.
Harvard-Harris co-director Mark Penn explained that voters were interested in the Russian election interference issue, but that it has become a harmful distraction with little chance of resulting in any implications for Trump.
“Most voters believe that the president’s actions don’t rise to the level of impeachable offenses, even if some of them were inappropriate,” Penn said, according to The Hill, citing the 62 percent of those polled who indicated that there was currently no hard evidence to support the collusion claims.
Even Americans who did not vote for the president expressed their discontent with the prolonged investigations.
One of them was Jim Wagner, a Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart recipient from Iowa.
“People are making too much of it,” Wagner said, according to NBC. “I don’t think there was really anything going on. I just wish (Trump) would shut everybody up and tell them instead of playing the game. I didn’t vote for him, but if he can put it to bed, he ought to.”
Despite the increasing lack of public support, anti-Trump congressional leaders haven’t seemed to be interested in moving on any time soon.
In fact, Independent Maine Sen. Angus King recently told The Daily Caller he was not troubled over the public’s growing fatigue with the Russian investigations, and Washington Democratic Sen. Patty Murray agreed.
“The country cares about the country. I’m not worried about that,” Murray said.
You may be worried about it when it comes time for you to be re-elected and your constituents are displeased with how you represented them in Congress.
Even liberal voters are learning it’s time to move one.
