Less than half of Americans are sold on the post-presidency impeachment of Donald Trump, a new poll finds. The poll from AP-NORC found that less than half of Americans aren’t convinced the Senate should convict former President Donald Trump — while a majority hold him partly responsible for the Jan. 6 events at the Capitol.

“Fewer Americans, 47%, believe the Senate should vote to convict Trump after his impeachment trial, which begins next week. Another 40% say he should not be convicted, and 12% aren’t sure.” the poll finds.

Moreover, the graph shows level of guilt people feel Trump holds for the riot, the more likely they are to favor conviction.

A majority of Americans say Trump holds at least some level of guilt.

“Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that Trump bears at least a moderate amount of responsibility for the breach of the U.S. Capitol, including half who say he bears a great deal or quite a bit,” AP finds. “Just over a third say he bears little to no responsibility.”

The poll also asked Republicans about their views on the legitimacy of the election, finding the majority say it was unfair.

65% of Republicans say Biden was not legitimately elected while 33% of Republicans say he was.

“Overall, 66% of Americans say Biden was legitimately elected president, but 65% of Republicans say he was not,” the poll said.

As the Senate pursues charges against Donald Trump for inciting violence on Jan. 6, perhaps vulnerable senators should keep the unpopularity of the idea in mind.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
