A poll released Wednesday shows that most US voters see former President Trump as partially responsible for the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riots, view President Biden negatively, and think gas prices are a serious economic issue. .

The Quinnipac University poll also showed Biden continuing to be underwater in the polls, with results matching his historic low approval rating of 33%.

The study found that 6 in 10 Americans believe President Trump was in some way responsible for the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021, but opinions were split on whether the former president had committed a crime.

“Yes, the Jan. 6 attack was planned, say more than 60% of Americans, and a majority say yes, former President Trump bears some responsibility for the ensuing calamity. But criminal charges against Trump? It’s a toss-up. There’s no consensus,” said Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy.

The university’s poll found that 58% of Americans followed the January 6 Committee news “very closely”. But with the midterm elections in November, only 45% of voters said they would be less likely to vote for a political candidate who thinks the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.
