(Reuters) - Most Americans think President Donald Trump should agree to an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, if asked, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows.

 

A majority of Democrats wants Trump to consent to an interview while Republicans appear divided after months of negotiations between Trump and Mueller's teams and the president's changing position on the matter.

 

The following are some key findings from the poll:

   

Sixty percent of U.S. adults said President Trump should agree to an interview with Special Counsel Mueller, to answer questions about whether there was any coordination between associates of Trump's 2016 election campaign and Russia.

    

Trump has repeatedly said there was no collusion, and Russia has denied election meddling.

 

Fifty percent of registered Republicans said in the poll that Trump should not agree to an interview with Mueller while more than 1 in 3 said he should. Eighty-three percent of registered Democrats said they were in favour of the meeting.

 

In recent months, Trump has threatened to fire Mueller, drawing bipartisan criticism from lawmakers and the public. A Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted in May showed that 40 percent of Americans said Trump should not fire Mueller, while 27 percent said he should and 34 said they were unsure.

 

The Reuters/Ipsos poll surveyed 3,532 adults across the United States online and in English from June 9-18. It has a credibility interval, a margin of error, of about 2 percentage points.

Well Trump did say he was willing to be interviewed by Mueller, as he put it ‘I’m looking forward to it’.

Seems strange not to want to cooperate, given that he says has not done anything wrong re: conspiring with Russia to affect the election.

 

Spend a day or two, be honest, sort it out, clear your name and move on.

 

He has immense protections: he can't be indicted (while in office), and while he might be impeached he will never be convicted by trial in the Senate.

 

What's the big deal?

He hasn’t even tried to help with the investigation, which means he is guilty of something.  He’s a con man that has always seen himself as above the law, and now there is serious evidence in the hands of the investigation team.  I don’t think DT will be found colluding,  but tax evasion and money laundering is in the cards-oh, and lying about virtually everything

He would be in a heap of trouble, goin into the lions den filled with perjury traps,after all ,he isn't all ways precise with his words .Then again who knows the Mueller Investigation could be a mute point by then, a after thought.Have you noticed on all the news networks, everybody is hurrying and getting their finishing touches for publication on their new books .

if it is true that the pollster didn't disclose which states, how can the poll be considered legitimate ?  that said, a majority of american adults voted for clinton, add a few more of the independents that are sickened by trump's actions and it seems easy to get to 60%.

"He isn't always precise with his words."  Funny.  Another way to say it is TRUMP CONSTANTLY LIES HIS ASS OFF!  So yes, he will perjure himself if forced to testify under oath.  Guaranteed.

Why was this poll taken,June 9, before the IG report hearings 18-19th?

Geez, that same argument again.  These expats and sexpats and Democrats you speak of aren't POTUS.  And no, no one lies as much as Trump.  Trump has got to be the most dishonest person I've ever seen.  And this includes politicians, lawyers, used car salesman, snake oil salesman, bargirls...Trump tops them all by a large margin.

If he has committed no crime, and truly wants to clear his name... he should do the interview. He said he would months ago. The only reason for him not to take this interview is if he is in fear of incriminating himself, or if he is such a pathological liar that he knows he can not tell the truth and will commit perjury. Either way, a guy who won't give an interview for those reasons really should not be allowed to run the most powerful nation in the world.
