Poll: Jan. 6 Committee hearings not moving the meter

Empower Wisconsin  | June 27, 2022

What happens when you throw a politically driven inquisition and no one shows up?

Interest in the Democratic Party’s one-sided Jan. 6 Committee hearings is waning. And, according to a new poll by Convention of States Action, a solid majority (62%) of Americans say the committee’s findings won’t change how they vote in November.

The survey, conducted by renowned pollster The Trafalgar Group, finds 75% of voters identifying as Independents say the congressional committee’s probe will not impact their voting sentiments come November.

“A majority of voters – even one-third of Democrats – don’t care about the January 6th proceedings in Congress. While Washington DC elites obsess about scoring political points, Americans face real issues like inflation, rising crime, and shortages of basic staples like baby formula and feminine products,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “Understanding where Independents are leaning is the key to winning national elections, and those seeking to earn elected office should pay close attention to the stark fact that three-quarters of must-win voters aren’t interested in what is being sold to them.”

Some other polls underscore Meckler’s point.

A Morning Consult poll last week shows just 51 percent of voters approve of the House select committee. Among independent voters, the number drops to 45 percent.

“In other words, half the country respects the committee while half does not. If the goal is to change minds and make people care more than before, that doesn’t seem to be happening,” Joe Concha wrote in The Hill.

President Joe Biden’s approval rating remains near rock bottom as Americans now squarely blame him for America’s economic and inflation woes, according to the latest NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ poll released Thursday.

That poll shows 58% of voters disapprove of Biden’s performance. Fifty-three percent of voters surveyed said they’re worse off financially now than they were one year ago. Seventy-two percent of Americans ranked inflation chief among those concerns. Next on the list was crime (15%) and then COVID-19 (10%).

The poll shows 27% of those surveyed were following the Jan. 6 Committee hearings “A lot”, while 53% said “A little.” About 19% said they weren’t following the hearings.

  • How can it move the needle when most people are aware by this time that the J6 committee is nothing but a witch hunt organized by Hag Nancy Pelosi? Anyone with any sense, is simply ignoring the hoopla.
