Where the parties split, however, is on whether the Trump administration should be allowed to redact part of the report. Only 11 percent of Democrats believe the administration has the right to do so, while 52 percent of Republicans believe it does. Overall, 28 percent of respondents believe Trump should be allowed to redact parts of the report, while 49 percent do not. 

Researchers surveyed respondents between Feb. 22 and Feb. 24, and the poll's margin of error is 2 percentage points.

Mueller is investigating whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election, including whether the foreign power colluded with the Trump campaign. Trump has repeatedly insisted there was no collusion and that the Mueller probe is a "witch hunt."
