"Mueller Report Upends Partisan Views Of Probe, Poll Finds"

Given the content, I don't understand the title.
When I see stuff like this, I always think: prejudice. Or as we now sometimes say: "motivated reasoning." Which is not a great term. (What matters is what the motive is...)
But anyway, another explanation for people basically refusing to change their minds is that they take themselves to have at least three years worth of evidence about Trump. And the new evidence like this isn't sufficient to outweigh all that. Their priors are fixed (or seem to be) by so much evidence that they can't be moved as much as you might think by this new evidence.
But also probably a fair bit of prejudice.
