A majority of Americans condemn the Jan. 6 riot and believe that former President Trump bears at least some responsibility for that violent attack on the Capitol.
An ABC News-Ipsos poll found that 72 percent of Americans said the people involved in the riot were mostly threatening democracy, while 25 percent said they were mostly protecting democracy.
The poll also found that 58 percent of people surveyed said Trump bore a great deal or good amount of responsibility for the Capitol riot, while 41 percent who said he bore no or just some responsibility.
A majority of Americans also said they believed that Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential election victory was legitimate, with 65 percent of Americans agreeing. Still, one third — 33 percent — said they think Biden’s victory was not legitimate nearly one year after he was inaugurated.
The top-line findings started to diverge along partisan lines, ABC reported. For example, 45 percent of Republicans believed that the people involved in the attack on the Capitol were threatening democracy, while 52 percent felt they were protecting democracy.
In comparison, 96 percent of Democrats believed those involved in the attack were threatening democracy, ABC reported.
The new poll comes just before the one-year anniversary of the riot in which Trump supporters ransacked the Capitol to contest the election and tried to stop Congress from certifying Biden's victory.

Must I say it????
We all have to stop re-posting this Left Wing Manure from The Hill
How do these morons know President Trump was “partially to blame”? The jackasses heard it on the liberal fake news. They were just regurgitating that sh*t back to the pollsters so as to not show their ignorance.
abc! Your lower case fake news headquarters!
I don’t believe that tripe for a second. It was a duly deserved massive demonstration against election fraud that was orchestrated into a so-called insurrection by government agents. And this first-year remembrance tirade by Democrats is just standard fare for them.
If we don’t know what the other side is saying, how do we counter it?
Unfortunately, reading what the opposition is thinking and doing is pretty much essential.
Oh boy, time for our disgraceful national Lügenpresse to pretend it’s 09/11/2002 this coming Thursday.
Either a Fake Poll, or propaganda 24/7 still works.
I have seen polls that say the exact opposite of this.
> A majority of Americans condemn the Jan. 6 riot and believe that former President Trump bears at least some responsibility <
Well, of course they would. If the media continually broadcasted that 1+1 = 3, most Americans would conclude that 1+1 really does equal 3.
Same pollster that said trump was losing by 15 points?
It’s odd that the Dems think Jan. 6 is their rallying point to win back the public to their side. Totally tone deaf.
How about a question regarding the rioting in the previous year? Like the 2 billion dollars in damage and 30 plus deaths and murders?
If we don’t know what the other side is saying, how do we counter it?.....
What are you doing to counter it?
We all have to stop re-posting this Left Wing Manure from The Hill.....
I agree. I avoid this leftist trash and dislike having it stuck in my face here.
Wish JR would put the “shill” in the same category as bloomburg.
That’s what I thought.
GEEZ, I didn’t read the second sentence,
YIKES, ABC, THE COMPLETE WORST OF THE WORSTEST FOR ANY TRUTH.
