A special congressional committee has spent weeks holding televised hearings about the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, but apparently it has had little effect on public opinion.
This is according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.
The survey found that 34% of likely U.S. voters said the House Select Committee’s hearings have made them 'more likely' to vote for Democrats this fall in the congressional midterm elections. However, 30% say the Capitol riot hearings have made them 'more likely' to vote for Republicans.
Thirty-two percent (32%) say the hearings have not made much difference in how they plan on voting in November.
According to Nielsen, about 17 million viewers tuned in for last Thursday’s primetime hearing of the House Select Committee.
Twenty-nine percent (29%) of voters say they have watched most of the J6 committee’s hearings, while 21% have watched some of the hearings.
Twenty percent (20%) have not watched very much of the J6 hearings, and 28% have not watched them at all.
Forty-seven percent (47%) of voters believe the Capitol riot represented a threat to American democracy, while 43% don’t think so and another 10% are not sure.
These findings are only slightly changed from January, when 50% said the Capitol riot was a threat to democracy.
