A new Quinnipiac University survey found that 56% of voters believe the president is directly responsible for the violence that took place during riots at the Capitol building last week.

Among the survey's findings:

  • 53% of voters say Trump should resign
  • 52% of voters favor Trump's removal from office
  • 58% of voters say House and Senate Republicans that challenged the Electoral College vote undermined democracy
  • 58% of voters say they do not believe that there was any widespread election fraud
  • 47% of voters view the Capitol siege as an attempted coup
  • 31% of voters think Biden will be capable of uniting the country

After Senate Republicans shot down a Monday resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, Democrats filed one article of impeachment against him.

It remains to be seen if any Senate Republicans would be willing to vote to convict the president of inciting a mob.
