The public is largely supportive of the FBI investigation into the possible links between Donald Trump’s campaign team and the Russian government.
The Huffington Post/YouGov poll  found that Americans support an investigation by a 17-point margin, 48% to 31%.
The poll also found that about half of Americans believe Russia interfered in the 2016 election, but only about a third believe the intent was to help Trump win.
Opinions on the investigation are largely determined by whom voters supported in the presidential election. More than 80% of Clinton supporters believe the Russia story is a legitimate issue, while Trump voters disagree, 65% to 22%.
