Despite spending countless millions of dollars, along with prime time televised hearings and market saturation level national media coverage … the so-called January 6th Committee Hearings have had almost no impact whatsoever on the American people.

That’s according to a just released Monmouth University poll.

”When we released our June poll, I said the committee was preaching to the choir. These current results suggest they haven’t recruited any new singers since then,“ said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University polling Institute.

One of the more interesting findings is the fact that fewer respondents believe that former President Donald Trump is responsible for what took place on January 6, 2021 … 38 percent in August, 2022 versus 42 percent in June, 2022.

Trump’s standing actually improved following celebrated hearsay witness Cassidy Hutchison’s highly publicized testimony against Trump.

“The sensational revelations during the hearings do not seem to have moved the public opinion needle on Trump‘s culbility for either the riot or his spurious election fraud claims,” said Murray.

Note, Murray’s strong opinions in what is supposed to be a dispassionate science. The word “spurious” means false or fake.

In the poll, only 5 percent of Republicans said that Trump is directly responsible, with more than eight and 10 Republicans having a favorable impression of Trump.

“As we have seen from the success of Trump endorsed candidates in recent primaries, he continues to hold sway over a large portion of the Republican base,“ Murray said. “That doesn’t necessarily make him a shoe him for the nomination in 2024, but he remains a formidable presence,” said Murray.

After endless public hearings - which will continue in September - the Democratic-leaning Monmouth poll has concluded that only 8 percent of the American people have changed their minds about the January 6 incident because of the January 6th Committee hearings.
