Poll: More Americans Want Comey Prosecuted Than Last Year

By Ryan Saavedra

On Monday, a newly-released poll from Rasmussen Reports revealed that more Americans think that former FBI Director James Comey should be criminally prosecuted than they did last year.

Additionally, the Rasmussen poll found that only “14% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that Comey was a better FBI director than most of those who held the job before him.”

Almost three times as many likely U.S. voters (38%) said that Comey did a worse job as FBI Director than his predecessors.

After his interview on Sunday and launch of his new book, more Americans now want to see him criminally prosecuted (46%) than wanted to see him criminally prosecuted last year (41%).

At the same time, the number of people who think he should not be criminally prosecuted sits at 34%, which is a 13-point drop from last year when 47% said he should not face prosecution.
