A new survey by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling found that 67% of Republicans and 33% of independents think the Mueller investigation should be shut down, and 80% of Republicans agree it's a witch hunt.

Why it matters: Trump's ultimate goal has been to discredit Mueller's work — and it appears to be working.

Another key finding from the survey shows that large majorities of Republican (90%) and independent (94%) voters agree that "no one is above the law, not even the President."

  • And 46% of independents have a favorable opinion of Mueller compared to Trump's 36% approval rating.
  • Although a majority of Republicans want the investigation to be shut down, 62% of them believe Mueller's probe should "follow the facts wherever they lead."

U.S. government bonds could breakout further after yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note ticked up to their highest since early June last week.

But, but, but: Strategists say this move is about an improving outlook for economic growth rather than just inflation.

The dangerous instability of school re-openings

Schools across the country have flip-flopped between in-person and remote learning — and that instability is taking a toll on students' ability to learn and their mental health.

The big picture: While companies were able to set long timelines for their return, schools — under immense political and social strain — had to rush to figure out how to reopen. The cobbled-together approach has hurt students, parents and teachers alike.
