(NEWSWEEK)A majority of Americans believe that Donald Trump should face criminal charges in relation to the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to a new poll.
The survey found that 54 percent of respondents backed the idea of the Department of Justice (DOJ) indicting the former president over the Capitol riot, compared to 37 percent who oppose the suggestion.
The data from Navigator Research also revealed that Republicans were the only partisan group whose majority do not want to see Trump being charged over the Capitol riot and his attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Members of Congress were inside the Capitol building certifying Joe Biden's win at the time of the attack by pro-Trump supporters.
What dichotomy! The majority of Americans who want Trump to face a criminal trial versus the deadenders who still think Trump was robbed of the 2020 election.
The poll by Navigator Research was conducted from June 9 to June 13, 2020.
