(Tea Party PAC) – The majority of voters don’t know that evidence shows that Barack Obama and Joe Biden were involved in the FBI’s investigation into the Trump 2016 campaign according to a new poll from Just the News and Scott Rasmussen.
Is this even that surprising considering what has been going on in the world of mainstream media-hyped crises like a pandemic and mass protests?
Here’s the data:
Last month, Just the News reported that “the belated discovery of disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok’s January 2017 notes suggests then-Vice President Biden raised the issue of using the Logan Act — an obscure, centuries-old law — as a possible avenue for continuing to investigate Michael Flynn.”
Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, was a campaign surrogate, then became President Trump’s national security adviser. Flynn agreed to plead guilty in the FBI’s probe into whether the campaign colluded with Russia. But evidence showing the mishandling of the probe recently led the Justice Department to move to drop the case.
Biden, for his part, has claimed to have had no knowledge of the Flynn investigation.
Obama seemed to have been quoted by Strzok as suggesting the FBI assign “the right people” to follow up on the case, according to notes from the notorious FBI agent that were recently released.
According to the new Rasmussen poll, a plurality of US voters (38%) don’t know if the statement is true or false, and the remaining voters are split evenly.
“Poll numbers show that the latest information on the investigations has not penetrated the public discussion,” said veteran pollster Rasmussen. “Naturally, there is a partisan tone to the results. Sixty-three percent (63%) of Republicans believe it’s true while 56% of Democrats don’t.”
The Just the News Daily poll asked voters, “Is the following statement true or false: New evidence shows that Barack Obama and Joe Biden were directly involved in ordering and overseeing the FBI’s investigation of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.” They responded as below:
- 32% True
- 30% False
- 38% Not Sure
The Rasmussen national survey of 1,200 registered voters conducted between June 25-27, 2020. Margin of sampling error: +/- 2.8% for full sample.
