POLL: Voters Don’t Care about the January 6 Hearings
Voters are largely tuning out of the January 6, 2021 storming of the Capitol hearings.
According to a Rasmussen Reports poll, 20% of likely United States said they would watch all of the television coverage of the special committee hearing. An additional 14% plan on watching most of the televised hearings, but 22% indicated they’ll watch some of the hearings.
39% won’t even bother watching TV coverage of the hearings.
Democrats are much more interested in the January 6 hearings than other voters. 60% of Democrats said they’ll watch all or the majority of the TV coverage of the hearings. By contrast, only 22% of Republicans and 21% of independent voters will watch that much of the TV coverage. 57% of Republicans and 47% of independent voters won’t watch any of the televised hearings.
57% of likely voters view the congressional investigation of the Capitol riot important, including 41% who believe it’s “very important.”
On the other hand, 39% don’t believe the investigation is important, which includes 27% who believe it’s “not all important.”
50% of voters believe the January 6 storming of the Capitol constituted a threat to American democracy, whereas 42% disagree. On partisan lines, there are stark contrasts on how this incident is perceived. 78% of Democrats believe the January 6 protests were a threat to democracy, but only 28% of Republicans and 43% of independent voters hold the same belief.
Overall, the January 6 hearings were nothing but Kabuki theater. To be sure, there were several individuals who committed criminal acts on January 6. However, it’s pure hyperbole to label January 6 as a “coup” or liken it to Pearl Harbor or the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
When inflation is destroying Americans’ pocket books, the border is collapsing, and crime is on the rise, Americans simply couldn’t care less about a big nothingburger such as January 6.
