Most voters believe FBI director James Comey should have criminally indicted presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to a new Rasmussen poll.
Fifty-four percent of voters disagreed with the FBI’s decision not to indict the former Secretary of State for her use of a private, personal email server where the FBI concluded that she exposed confidential information, creating a national security risk.
Thirty-seven percent of voters thought the FBI made the right decision.
Sixty-four percent of Democrats agreed with the FBI, but 79 percent “of Republicans, 63 [percent] of voters not affiliated with either major political party and 25 [percent] of Democrats disagree with the decision.”
Eighty-one percent of voters said powerful people receive preferential treatment, even when they violate the law.
“Among those who think powerful people get preferential treatment, 63 [percent] disagree with the FBI’s decision not to seek a criminal indictment of Clinton. Ninety percent (90%) of those who do not believe the powerful are treated differently agree with the FBI’s action,” according to the Rasmussen report.
Rasmussen Reports conducted the survey via telephone and online on July 5th with 1,000 likely voters. The margin of error is plus or minus three percent.
