Voters are also still split on the issue of obstruction of justice, a crime for which Mueller's team could not "exonerate" the president, according to Barr.  Nearly half — 47 percent — of respondents in the Politico/Morning Consult poll said that Trump “tried to impede or obstruct the investigation," while 53 percent said the same to Reuters/Ipsos pollsters.

Just 9 percent of respondents told Reuters/Ipsos that Barr's summary on Mueller's investigation had changed their minds, while 57 percent want to see the full report released.

“As the Mueller report conclusion reverberates broadly, our polling suggests that the release of the summary findings has had little impact on President Trump’s favorability," Morning Consult pollster Tyler Sinclair told Politico.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll, which surveyed 1,003 adults, has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points. The Politico/Morning Consult poll surveyed 1,974 registered voters, and its margin of error is 2 percentage points.
