Poll: 58 percent of Americans believe Trump should have been convicted

And respondents, 56 percent of whom saw evidence against Trump as strong, viewed senators’ votes as partisanship. Seventy-seven percent said senators voted based on party politics, compared to 23 percent who said the votes were grounded in reality. While Democrats and Republicans were separated from conviction, almost as many agreed that senators voted based on politics.

Senate Saturday acquitted Trump for inciting rebellion after the January 6 uprising at the Capitol by a vote of 57-43 and falling 10 votes below the required threshold for conviction. All 50 Democratic senators supported the conviction.

Voters’ views after acquittal were similar to last week’s POLITICO / Morning Consult poll, who found that 54 percent of registered voters were “somewhat” or “strongly” in agreement that Trump should be convicted. Fifty-eight percent of voters said he should either “probably” or “definitely” be prevented from running for public office in the future.
