Poll: Fewer than Half of Americans Believe Trump Should Be Disqualified for January 6

A poll released Tuesday showed that fewer than half of Americans think former President Donald Trump should be disqualified from the presidency in 2024 due to his alleged actions related to the January 6 Capitol riot — despite Democrat-elected judges and state officials attempting to take him off the ballot.

The poll, conducted by the Washington Post and University of Maryland’s Center for Democracy and Civic Engagement from December 14-18, showed that 46 percent say Trump’s actions related to January 6 should disqualify him.

That included 80 percent of Democrats surveyed, nine percent of Republicans, and 43 percent independents.

More Americans — 50 percent — said Trump should not be disqualified from the presidency for his actions related to January 6, or that they were “not relevant” to his fitness for the presidency.
