Republican support for firing James Comey as FBI director doubled after President Trump axed his top cop, according to a new survey.

Last month, just 31 percent of Republicans wanted Trump to bark "You're Fired," but it surged to 61 percent after Comey was dumped.

A Morning Consult/Politico poll just released found voters overall are split on the firing. Some 35 percent agreed, 33 percent were against and 32 percent said they didn't know or had no opinion.

Asked a different way, more than not — 37 percent versus 34 percent — said the firing was appropriate.
