Most Americans see the accusation of the Capitol protesters as “very important,” and a similar division sees political terrorism as a “major problem” for the country, according to a new Opinion Research Center poll. Pew.
According to the March 1-7 survey panel of 12,055 U.S. adults, 87% of Americans see legal action against the protesters as “at least something important.” While differences between those identified as Republican continued to be anti-democratic, 79% and 95% respectively, both groups tended to be strongly supportive of anti-dissident activity. .
Pew’s opinion also influenced such political radicalism. The study shows that Americans are currently more concerned about political terrorism than religious terrorism, even though they are divided about the kind of political radicalism that concerns them. On average, half of Americans see left-right and right-wing terrorism as a major problem, but more than 70% of Democrats and Republicans see the radical signs of face political streams as bigger problems than finishers in their own camps. Only about 30% of Democrats and Republicans see terrorism among left or right supporters as a major problem.
One of the radical groups that led the Capitol riots was the supporters of QAnon. Pew’s poll showed that 61% of Americans are familiar with the QAnon conspiracy theories. However, Republican individuals are more likely than Democrats to say they do not know about QAnon.
The Pew Research Center is a non – partisan organization that studies public sentiment on key public issues and trends. The March 1–7 study was conducted by a panel of randomly selected U.S. adults, participating through self-administered internet surveys. 89% of those selected responded to the survey.
