The Trump v. Comey war of words has hit a stalemate

Former FBI director James Comey's highly publicized interviews about his new book haven't convinced anyone who wasn't already on his side, according to a new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll.

The bottom line: The public's views of Comey, and President Trump's decision to fire him, have been baked in for the last year — so Comey's high-profile book tour has barely moved the needle on how they view the showdown.
