new Rasmussen poll shows that most Americans (91%) aren’t interested in reading fired FBI Director James Comey’s tabloid-type book detailing his interactions with President Trump.

Sixty percent (60%) of respondents say they are unlikely to read the book and 31 percent say they are “Not At All Likely.” Meanwhile, only 36 percent say they are somewhat likely to read Comey’s exposé, with 13 percent who are “Very Likely” to do so.

The poll results don’t come as a surprise after the less-than-poor turnout for the book’s official release on Tuesday.

Rasmussen also found that Americans don’t trust that the book is an accurate portrayal of Comey’s dealings with Trump, with 42 percent who view it as a politically motivated attack on the President.

Forty percent (40%) disagree and 19 percent are unsure.

In the book “A Higher Loyalty” released on Tuesday, Comey describes President Trump as an “ego-driven” mob boss who’s “unethical, and untethered to the truth.”

He has since faced criticism for politicizing the FBI and acting beneath the dignity of the office he served.

The Rasmussen poll of 1,000 likely U.S. voters was conducted April 16-17 and has a margin sampling error of three percentage points.
