The commission on the attack on the Capitol has no influence on Trump’s image, according to a survey

The series of appearances and revelations during the United States House of Representatives commission investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol did not change the public’s perception of that incident, nor did it alter the image of then-US President Donald Trump , according to a new poll.

The poll, conducted by Monmouth University after a pause in hearings, shows just 38 percent blame Trump directly for the attack, down four points from June. For Republicans, that number drops to 5 percent.

Thirty-two percent of respondents believe the former president did nothing wrong, and 29 percent share Trump’s theory about alleged voter fraud in the 2020 election. Six in 10 Republicans question the legitimacy of Democrat Joe Biden’s election victory, reports The Hill.

The poll, which comes to light in what has been a particularly tumultuous week for Trump following the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago, Fla., mansion, reflects that the tycoon remains a popular figure in American society who has an important aspect considering that he is considering running for the 2024 elections.

Four out of ten respondents are aware that if Trump takes the final step, which has not yet been set, they will vote for him. The President has hinted that it could be imminent ahead of November’s congressional elections, in which Republicans will seek to regain control of Congress.
