Asked whether they agreed with the statement “There should be an independent review of all of Hillary Clinton’s emails from her personal account to ensure that she has turned over everything work-related,” 47 percent of Democrats “strongly” or “somewhat” agreed, versus 40 percent who strongly or somewhat disagreed.
