A new Economist/YouGov survey found that 61% of conservative voters believe that President Trump is being framed by the FBI.

Yes, but: The poll figures among Democrats is dramatically different. Only 7% say the FBI is going after Trump, and 78% believe he’s not being framed.
The backdrop: This comes after a CBS News poll released on Tuesday found that a majority of Americans think Mueller’s investigation is politically motivated.
