Poll: 57% of voters think investigations into Trump should continue
Why it matters: The poll's results contradict remarks by Trump himself, who has sought to paint Americans as "so angry" about the FBI's search of his home.
The big picture: Fifty-seven percent of voters agreed with the statement that the probes should continue because "he needs to be held accountable just like anyone else."
- 40% of respondents agreed with the statement that the investigations should stop "because they are politically motivated" and "divide the country."
- 92% of Democratic voters, 61% of independents and 21% of Republican voters believed the investigations should continue, per NBC News.
- 50% of voters surveyed said Trump is solely or mainly responsible for the events of Jan. 6, a five-point increase since the same poll was conducted in May.
Worth noting: Voters ranked "threats to Democracy" as the most important issue facing the country, pushing "cost of living" — which ranked No. 1 in May — to the No. 2 slot.
Methodology: The NBC News poll was conducted Aug. 12-16 among 1,000 registered voters, including 750 reached by cellphone, and has an overall margin of error of ± 3.1 percentage points
