More Americans Believe Comey Than Believe Trump
Rumor has it that this poll is driving Donald Trump to fits of rage. I believe it. His narcissistic personality demands that he be loved and trusted -- and the American public doesn't do either.
The fact is that more Americans believe James Comey than believe Donald Trump (45% to 22%). They think Trump is lying about trying to influence Comey to stop the Russian hacking investigation (or demanding loyalty from him).
They also don't believe Trump when he says the Russians didn't interfere in the 2016 election. A 53% majority believes they did interfere.
These charts are from a new NBC News / Wall Street Journal Poll -- done between June 17th and 20th of a random national sample of 900 adults, with a margin of error of 3.3 points.
