A recent poll found that the majority of Americans are saying they have heard enough about the Mueller Report, and they wish members of Congress would move on to focus on more important topics.
While the mainstream media and members of Congress have continued to talk about what could come from the Mueller Report, the majority of Americans are now saying that there are more important topics to focus on.
This, according to a recent poll from CBS news, which found that 58 percent of Americans say they have heard enough about the Mueller Report. And only 37 percent say they want to hear more.
Although the Mueller Report was once used by Democrats as a beacon of hope to go after President Trump for accusations of colluding with Russia, it is now being used by Trump as a talking point to remind the world that the findings revealed no collusion.
“Well there’s never been a president more transparent. The Mueller report came out, no obstruction, no collusion, no nothing, it’s a beautiful report. The Democrats cannot understand what happened,” Trump said during a press conference in Tokyo. “They can’t get over the fact that, never spoke to Russia, never dealt with Russia, having to do with the subject that we’re talking about.”
Last month, a report revealed that for Democrats in Congress, their big fear was that “public interest in the Mueller report was ebbing.“
That now appears to be exactly what has happened, as the latest poll shows that 53 percent of Americans say they want Democrats to drop the Mueller Report, and to focus on topics that have an impact on average members of the public.
A poll from Gallup found that the top issues Americans worry “a great deal” about in 2019 are the availability and affordability of healthcare; federal spending and the budget deficit; hunger and homelessness; drug use; crime and violence; and the quality of the environment.
But while the American public shows concern for issues here at home, those issues seem to be the one thing members of Congress cannot agree on.
Following an hours-long, closed door meeting between Congress and White House negotiators, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters that while they agreed on military spending, they did not reach a deal overall, because they could not agree on the non-defense side of the budget.
While the commitment to the world’s largest military budget stays firm, it remains to be seen whether members of Congress will move on from the Mueller Report, or whether they will continue to look for ways to use the “Russia” narrative as a political tool, even though no evidence of collusion was found.
