Voters Not Convinced Obama Wasn’t In On Trump Spying

Voters are split on whether President Barack Obama or his inner circle were aware that U.S. intelligence agencies were spying on Donald Trump’s campaign, but they don’t believe Obama officials leaked names picked up in the surveillance efforts to the media.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s at least somewhat likely Obama or his top aides were aware that the nation’s intelligence agencies were spying on the Trump campaign and the Trump transition team, including 32% who believe it’s Very Likely. But 42% don’t think it’s likely, with 27% who say it’s Not at All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The national survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted on April 5-6, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
