Suffolk University–USA Today poll found that about 62 percent of voters said it is very important that the findings of Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election be made public, while another 20 percent said they think it is somewhat important.


Fourteen percent of people surveyed said it is either "not particularly important" or not at all important that the report be released.

The poll's findings come after last week's unanimous House vote in support of a resolution that calls for the report to be made public. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) later blocked the measure in the Senate.
