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 MuellerTrump says he'll release financial records before election, knocks Dems' efforts House impeachment hearings: The witch hunt continues Speier says impeachment inquiry shows 'very strong case of bribery' by Trump MORE's investigation, or the possible impeachment of President TrumpDonald John TrumpWatergate prosecutor says that Sondland testimony was 'tipping point' for Trump In private moment with Trump, Justice Kennedy pushed for Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination: book Obama: 'Everybody needs to chill out' about differences between 2020 candidates 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.
