But, more than eight in 10 voters - or 82 percent - said they believe it's "very" or "somewhat" important that the Justice Department release all Mueller's investigation report to the public, the poll found.

Trump touted the poll's results Monday morning.

Half of Americans believe President Donald Trump is the victim of a political "witch hunt", almost two years after the launch of the Russian Federation meddling investigation, a new poll showed Monday.

Trump jumped on the survey's finding that half of Americans agree with his claim that the Mueller probe is a "witch hunt". Thirty percent expressed "a lot" of trust in Trump's denials, versus only 28 percent in Mueller's investigation being fair and accurate - down five points since December.

The poll found that almost 62 percent felt that public release of the report was very important while more than 20 percent felt it was somewhat important.

David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk Political Research Center, said the poll shows that Trump has persuaded Americans to adopt his view of Mueller's investigation.
