Nearly two-thirds of likely voters say that, if Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation fails to find collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia, congressional Democrats should “move on to other issues,” a survey by Rasmussen Reports finds.

While 64% think Democrats should move on, 29% say congressional Democrats should conduct their own investigation. Nine percent aren’t sure what the Democrats should do.

By party affiliation, 83% of Republicans, 41% of Democrats, and 71% of “other” party supporters said Democrats should move on to other issues, if the Mueller report finds no evidence of collusion.

If the Mueller probe fails to find proof that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government, should congressional Democrats do their own investigation, or should they move on to other issues?

  • Congressional Democrats should do their own investigation: 29%
    • Republicans: 15%
    • Democrats: 50%
    • Other: 21%
  • They should move on to other issues: 64%
    • Republicans: 83%
    • Democrats: 41%
    • Other: 71%
  • Not Sure: 6%
    • Republicans: 2%
    • Democrats: 9%
    • Other: 9%

By annual income, belief that Democrats should “move on,” instead of launching their own investigation, ranged from a low of 48% among those earning under $30,000 to a high of 84% of those with incomes greater than $200,000.

  • Congressional Democrats should do their own investigation: 29%
    • Under $30,000: 38%
    • $30,000-$50,000: 28%
    • $50,000-$100,000: 33%
    • $100,000-$200,000: 23%
    • More than $200,000: 12%
  • They should move on to other issues: 64%
    • Under $30,000: 48%
    • $30,000-$50,000: 67%
    • $50,000-$100,000: 63%
    • $100,000-$200,000: 71%
    • More than $200,000: 84%
