MSNBC: 61 Percent of Americans Believe Trump Fired Comey to Protect Himself

‘Only 27 percent said he did it for the good of the country’

EXCERPT:

SCARBOROUGH: "Sixty-one percent of Americans believe that Donald Trump fired Comey simply to protect himself. Only 27 percent said he did it for the good of the country. His approval ratings in the mid to high 30s now, historically low for a president at this stage. Question is, how long do the Republicans stand by this guy, who is lying every day?"
