Two-Thirds Of Voters Think Trump Tried Changing Election Outcome, Poll Finds

More than 65% of those who believe former President Donald Trump worked to overturn the 2020 presidential election think he should be prosecuted for his actions, which roughly half of all voters believe constituted criminal behavior, according to a new poll from Morning Consult taken days after the January 6 committee finished its fifth public hearing unveiling bombshell revelations about Trump’s behavior before and during the insurrection.

About two-thirds of voters think Trump tried to change the outcome of the election, with 88% of Democrats believing he did so, 68% of independents and 40% of Republicans, according to the poll, which surveyed roughly 2,000 voters from June 24 to June 26.

About 49% of all voters believe Trump committed a crime, the poll found.

Nearly 90% of Democrats and 60% of independents who think Trump worked to overturn the presidential outcome believe his behavior warrants criminal prosecution.

More than 55% of Republicans who think Trump attempted to overturn the results do not believe he committed a crime, however.

Republican voters’ interactions with the January 6 panel may not be extensive: Only 15% of GOP voters said they had seen, read or heard “a lot” about the January 6 committee’s public hearings, according to the poll, though another recent survey from Morning Consult conducted from June 23 to 25 found roughly 40% of Republicans had read, heard or seen something “negative” about Trump in recent weeks, an increase from the 24% of GOP voters before the hearings began.
