The majority of respondents, 32%, incorrectly believe that the House Select Committee will not have the hearings broadcast in prime time, the poll found. More than 1-in-5 (21%) believe the hearings have already happened, while 29% correctly answered the hearings were occurring that week.
Nearly half of respondents, 42%, said supporters of former President Donald Trump want to “end democracy and install Trump as the nation’s permanent leader,” while 37% said that is not the case. The remaining 21% said they are not sure.
The poll surveyed 1,165 registered voters online by Scott Rasmussen between June 7-8 with a 2.9% margin of error.
“When these hearings are over, voters will know how irresponsibly complicit Republicans were in attempting to toss out their vote and just how far Republicans will go to gain power for themselves,” New York Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney told The New York Times.
