An overwhelming majority of President Donald Trump supporters said they would vote for the president again despite last week’s storming of the Capitol.

“Despite their criticism of his conduct since Nov. 3rd and last week, 𝟵𝟭% of Trump voters say they’d still vote for him if another presidential election were held today,” Pollster Frank Luntz tweeted Monday, Jan. 11.

Luntz noted that only 25% of the president’s voters said he was responsible for the Capitol breach.

The Capitol Building attack by a group of rioters sparked a push to impeach President Trump by the House Democrats. On Wednesday, Democrats, joined by 10 Republicans, passed an article of impeachment against the president, charging him with “incitement of insurrection” for the speech he gave to supporters on Jan. 6. 

However, during his speech that day, the president told his supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” Since Jan. 6, he repeatedly called for peace and repeatedly condemned the violence that resulted in 5 deaths. 

When asked about the greatest threat to U.S. security, 16% of Trump supporters said that it was socialism, 15% believed the radical left poses the greatest threat, and 15% said that fake news media would put the nation in peril.

Additionally, 78% of Trump voters polled said they agree with the president’s statement that the 2020 election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him, and 67% believe the president would win the election if the votes were “counted accurately and fairly.”

Fifty percent of voters said President Trump should continue his fight to stay in the White House, while another half said he should leave.
