A recent poll found that a large percentage of respondents said the Jan. 6 House committee hearings did not change their minds about the incident on Capitol Hill.
“Have the recent House January 6 committee hearings changed our minds about what happened on Capitol Hill that day or who is responsible, or have the hearings not changed? notice?” the Monmouth University poll, released on Tuesday, asked respondents.
In August, 8% answered: “Yes, yes”, while 89% answered: “No, no”.
The poll was conducted by telephone from July 28 to August 1 among 808 adults in America, and the question results had a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.
Additionally, U.S. citizens leaned towards the belief that the January 6 hearings were partisan in nature, and most believed they were designed to prevent former President Donald Trump from running again, according to an I&I/TIPP poll. published in July.
Breitbart News reported:
The survey asked 1,643 adults nationwide if they agreed or disagreed with two statements, one of which states: “Some say the main purpose of the January 6 committee is to make sure President Trump can’t run in 2024.”
Sixty percent, overall, agree that the committee’s primary goal is to prevent Trump from running in the next presidential election. Moreover, 62% of Democrats, 70% of Republicans and a plurality of independents – 48% – share this view. According to the survey, independent voters “were the only group of more than 21 demographic categories tracked by the I&I/TIPP poll that was below 50 percent.”
During a recent interview on Fox News Channel HannityRep. Jim Banks (R-IN) criticized the Jan. 6 committee, saying it “exonerated” Trump.
“And that’s the best they can do, this audience tonight, the final event, the prime-time audience,” Banks said. “It’s the best they can do. They haven’t proven anything. If they’ve done anything, they’ve exonerated President Donald Trump and the Republicans who supported him.”
