*Half of Republicans believe the Jan. 6 siege was “largely a non-violent protest” or done by left-wing activists “trying to make Trump look bad,” the poll found.

*Only three in 10 Republicans blame Trump for the attack.


*Most respondents overall—59%—blame Trump for the attack, and 80% of Democrats and 60% of Independents do not believe the Jan. 6 events were nonviolent or staged by the left.

*While 60% of Americans overall believe President Joe Biden fairly won the presidential election, 60% of Republicans instead believe Trump’s claims that Biden’s win was due to widespread voter fraud despite a lack of credible evidence.

*Trump continues to have a strong hold on the GOP: 80% of Republicans have a positive view of the former president, and six in 10 believe he should run for president again in 2024.

*The poll was conducted among 1,005 U.S. adults between March 30-31—days after Trump defended the Capitol rioters during a Fox News interview on March 25 and said they posed “zero threat” and “love our country.”

A February Quinnipiac University poll found 76% of Republicans believed the voter fraud claims, after a December poll from the same group found 77% support. A February poll from the R Street Institute showed 67% of Republicans believed the election was invalid.

Sad and disturbing. I think people have probably made up their minds and it’s not going to change much now.

Clinical denial with moral freedom to believe the Big Lie is a powerful combination.

Sometimes you just can't figure out what or how people think.

It’s the old “My mind’s made up; don’t confuse me with facts!”

That or "Thank you but I have my own set of alternative facts*."

*that pronouncement by Conway apparently caused a permanent rift with her teenage daughter.

it seems that if she didn't say that, the teen would have found something else to cause a permanent rift.

I have some family members that have gone so far to the right I simply don't know what to think anymore. Really bizarre behavior that I would have never thought possible from them.

It’s hard taking a bone from a dog. These are people that for four plus years finally got to hit off the ‘you were right all along’ crack pipe.

All those crazy, bigoted, hateful, stupid, selfish things they couldn’t say in front of ‘certain people’ weren’t just validated, they were celebrated, as “truly American” and patriotic. They got catchy slogans. They got cool names they could call the other side out loud. They. Got. HATS.

Four years of the sweet nectar of you’re not crazy, they’re crazy... and bad and weak and stupid and perverted and unamerican and cannibals and... and...

You don’t let go of that high easily or willingly.

We have some of these in our family. They were always far right, but now they are far looney. I am appalled at some of their decisions not because it impacts me but because of what they are doing to their kids and the ability to operate in our society long-term.

Yeaaahhhh....still waiting on that one.
