82% Disapprove of Those Who Occupied Capitol

A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 82% of voters disapproved of those who took part in the occupation of the U.S. Capitol. The survey found that disapproval came from 71% of Republicans. And, among those who believe President Donald Trump was the legitimate winner of Election 2020 — those who believe the election was stolen — 58% disapprove of the actions they saw on January 6.

However, fully one-third of all voters (33%) believe that most Trump voters supported the attack on the Capitol. That figure includes a solid plurality of Democrats (46%).

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen from January 17-19, 2021. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Respondents were contacted online through a process of Random Digital Engagement. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
