Close to 6 in 10 Americans Want Trump Investigations to Continue

A newly published NBC News A survey shows that Americans support many investigations into former President Donald Trump. These include inquiries into Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election and an investigation into Trump’s improper removal of classified documents.

Fifty-seven percent of the poll’s respondents said that the investigations should continue because Trump should be held accountable, while just 40 percent said they didn’t support the investigations, citing a belief that they are politically motivated.

These views varied based on ideology. While 92 per cent of Democratic-leaning voters believed that inquiries should be pursued, 61 per cent of independents agreed. only 21 percent of Republican-leaning voters agreed.

Officials have opened several inquiries — at both the local and national levels — into Trump’s actions as president. These inquiries include but aren’t limited to: A Fulton County, Georgia investigation into Trump’s actions. His attempt to influence state election officials; A federal investigation into His improperly removing classified documentsFrom the White House to his private Mar-a-Lago home; and the House select committee’s investigationA mob of his loyalists attacked the U.S. Capitol Building.

Despite the fact that NBC News poll didn’t name each investigation specifically, it did ask about the January 6 attack. The poll found that Americans still believe the former President was at least partially responsible for the violent breach of the Capitol building, with 50 percent of respondents saying they believe that Trump is “solely or mainly responsible,” and 16 percent saying they think he is “only somewhat responsible.” Only 33 percent said that Trump was “not really responsible” at all.

Although numerous polls have suggested that Americans approve of the direction these inquiries have been taking, Trump has continued to wrongly suggest on social media that most Americans oppose the investigations — and that his polling numbers are improving because of it.

Trump recently shared a post on his Truth Social siteIt was clear that he held a 40 point lead over Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis during a hypothetical GOP primary race. But, the same poll. conducted by Politico/Morning ConsultAccording to a poll, 58 percent of Americans believe that Trump violated the law while he was president. Forty-nine percent of the poll’s respondents approved of the Mar-a-Lago search, while only 37 percent disapproved.

Trump didn’t share that portion of polling data, as expected.
