On July 5th, ABC News Ch. 8 Virginia’s daily poll asked viewers if they thought Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted for her actions that were under investigation by the FBI. It writes:
Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has been under scrutiny for almost a year after it came to light that she used a private email server for her government and personal emails, rather than the State Department’s email system while serving as Secretary of State to President Obama. She recently met with the FBI about an investigation being conducted to decide whether or not to criminally prosecute her for her actions.
Should she be prosecuted?
Of the 5,908 people who voted, 93.48 percent answered, “yes.”
But by July 13, the poll question slightly changed, and the number of voters more than quadrupled. The ABC News Ch. 8 daily poll asked: “Do you think Hillary Clinton should be criminally prosecuted for her use of a private email server while serving as Secretary of State?”
Trending: Science is Settled
The news site gave two answers from the Democratic and Republican presumptive presidential nominees. It writes:
Clinton has said relying on a private server was a mistake but that other secretaries of state had also used a personal email address previously.
Following reports of Clinton’s FBI interview, presumptive Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted: “It is impossible for the FBI not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton. What she did was wrong!”
Who do you agree with?
Of 28,869 voters, 93.84 percent voted yes, agreeing with Donald Trump.
If the numbers continue to grow as they have over the last five days, it’s highly likely that voters will continue to express increased support for Trump and also to criminally prosecute Hillary Clinton. But, it appears that the FBI doesn’t care about what voters want, or even the law.
And only 5,000 people had voted at the time.
