Analyst: Voters not talking about about impeachment, Mueller on campaign trail

Public opinion analyst Karlyn Bowman said in an interview that aired Tuesday on Hill.TV that voters in crucial, early nominating states like Iowa are not talking to presidential candidates about special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe MORE's investigation, or the possible impeachment of President TrumpDonald John TrumpWhat the Mueller report tells us about Putin, Russia and Trump's election Fox's Brit Hume fires back at Trump's criticism of the channel Anti-US trade war song going viral in China MORE

"Reporters who have been tagging along with candidates in Iowa report hearing very little about impeachment or the Mueller investigation," Bowman, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, told host Jamal Simmons on Monday. 

She added that candidates are getting questions about health care and the state of the economy instead.

Democrats are divided on whether to pursue impeachment in the wake of the special counsel's report, and details it contained on whether Trump obstructed justice.
