Most voters support a criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s practice of using a personal email account while secretary of state, according to a Monmouth University Poll released Wednesday.

“Do you think Hillary Clinton’s emails should be subject to a criminal investigation for potential release of classified material, or not?” the pollsters asked voters.

Fifty-two percent of voters polled say there should be a criminal investigation, while 41 percent said they are opposed to such a probe.

At the same time, more voters think Clinton’s email practices were more a matter of convenience (51 percent) than about hiding something (38 percent).

The poll was conducted July 30 to Aug. 2 of 1,203 adults with a margin of error of 3.1 percent.

The poll comes as Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley said two of Clinton’s emails on her private server have been deemed “top secret.” Clinton, according to her campaign, will now turn her server over to the Justice Department for review.
