A majority of Americans disapprove of the FBI's recommendation not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime over her handling of email while secretary of state, and a similar number in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say the issue leaves them worried about how she would handle her responsibilities as president if elected.
Overall, 56 percent disapprove of FBI Director James Comey's recommendation not to charge Clinton, while just 35 percent approve. Similarly, 57 percent say the incident makes them worried about how Clinton might act as president if she is elected, with most very worried about it. Just 39 percent feel the issue isn't related to how she would perform as president.
Here's probably the most telling part of the poll.
Roughly 6 in 10 independents say the FBI was wrong and that the issue raises worries about Clinton as president.
Although it was a very small sample size, it was stated to be a random sample of 519 adults via phone. Among democrats 3/4 say the findings make no difference to them. No surprises there...
