Even as they widely condemn the violence at the Capitol last week, Americans say there could be more in the days to come: 74% think it at least somewhat likely that there could be more acts of violence attempted next week, during President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration.



Seventy percent of Americans don't want to see President Trump's supporters hold protests next week. But most of Mr. Trump's 2020 voters, who are less likely than Americans overall to think violence is likely next week, would favor protests.

More immediately, a majority of Americans feel President Trump should be impeached now, as the House prepares to take up the matter.



Democrats and independents are largely in favor of this they feel impeachment would, among other things, "help prevent Donald Trump from running for president again," "send a signal that his behavior was wrong," and "show the world that democracy will defend itself," but they also think it could cause his supporters to protest more. They find agreement on this from 15% of Republicans, while 85% of Republicans oppose impeachment and are more likely to feel that it would create more division in the country.

1. They asked the wrong question

The proper question is "Do you favor more violence?"

These Republicans are not understanding the connection between Trump and the insurrection. They are in denial.
