According to a new poll, 70% of Americans disapprove of FBI Director James Comey. This could be reason enough for President Trump to ask for his resignation.
Independent.co.uk reported: A poll of registered voters showed they have a negative view of FBI Director James Comey by a two-to-one margin.
The Harvard-Harris Poll survey was only released in full to The Hill newspaper. It surveyed 2,092 registered voters – Democrat, Republican, and Indepedent – online from 14 to 16 March.
The poll showed that 35 per cent of those voters had a negative view of Mr Comey and 17 per cent had what the respondents deemed a positive view.
The Hill pointed out that even at the height of the red scare and McCarthyism, when Senator Joe McCarthy led the charge to root out Communists in the US, 78 per cent of voters thought FBI Director J Edgar Hoover, Jr was doing a good job according to a 1953 Gallup poll.
Harvard-Harris Poll co-director Mark Penn told The Hill that Mr Comey’s poll results likely points to “a crisis of confidence in his leadership as top law enforcement officer”.
Mr Comey now infamously threw a wrench into the 2016 presidential campaign only a little over a week before election day when he revealed the FBI had discovered more emails relevant to their prior investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server for State Department communications.
