Public Doesn't Believe Obama Wiretapped Trump
Donald Trump refuses to back off his accusation (i.e., LIE) that President Obama wiretapped him during/after the 2016 campaign. He sticks to that lie even though FBI Director Comey, the Justice Department, and our intelligence agencies say there is no proof that it happened.
But he needs to drop that accusation, and admit he was wrong. That's because the American people, by a huge margin, don't believe it happened. Two-thirds of the public (66%) think he was NOT wiretapped by Obama, while only one-third (34%) think it did happen. By continuing to lie about this, Trump is just further destroying his credibility with the American people.
These results are from the recent Harvard / Harris Poll done between March 14th and 16th of a random national sample of 2,092 registered voters. (No margin of error was given)
