Just over a year after the attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, Republicans mostly still support Donald Trump, but it appears that many in their party would like to put that day behind them and focus on other issues.

Many Republicans are opposed to the party taking any position on the issue. And, while the former president remains popular among the base, the entire rank and file isn’t completely on board. In fact, a sizable majority of Republicans support former Vice President Mike Pence’s adherence to constitutional procedure that day, and few want to see the party punish Republicans it considers disloyal to Trump.

Republicans argue that rather than directly punishing Republicans perceived to be disloyal to Trump, the party should take a different approach, such as supporting the incumbents’ opponents in primaries. And, rather than punishing these other views within the party, roughly half would simply accept them.

Few Republicans want to see the party openly support those who forced their way into the Capitol. A plurality of Republicans (44%) believe the party should not take a position on the January 6 participants, while a similar number believe it should be critical of them.

Republicans, in addition to remaining neutral, do not want political leaders to discuss January 6. Instead, the economy, inflation, crime and policing, and immigration are at the top of their list of issues that leaders should be debating.

Seven out of ten Republicans believe Congress should end its investigation into whether public officials were involved in the events of January 6. This figure has risen slightly since just six weeks ago, mirroring the views of the majority of Americans, seven out of ten of whom want Congress to investigate.

At the same time, a large majority of Republicans support former Vice President Pence’s actions in following the procedure outlined in the Constitution for opening and counting state votes. There’s some ambiguity here, with half of those polled saying they support Trump’s efforts to overturn the election (those who do are divided on Pence’s actions). Nonetheless, a four-in-ten plurality clearly supports the former vice president, both approving of his actions and disapproving of Trump’s pressure on him.

Approximately seven in ten Republicans believe Trump should run for president again in 2024. Among the most frequently cited reasons are that he is the best candidate Republicans have and that he would win. Fewer people, but still roughly half, believe he deserves another chance.

The former president’s clout extends to the types of candidates Republicans prefer in future elections. A large majority of voters would prefer candidates with policies and proposals similar to his. Solid majorities want similar perspectives on coronavirus vaccines and the 2020 election. Only half, on the other hand, say they would want candidates who are similar to Trump in terms of how they handle themselves personally.

One of Trump’s ideas that has gained traction within the party is his recent proposal to pardon those who forced their way into the Capitol on January 6. Six out of ten Republicans support such pardons, putting them at odds with the rest of the country.

Republicans’ sympathetic stance toward the January 6 protesters is deeply rooted in long-standing concerns about the election. Many Republicans continue to claim widespread voter fraud and irregularities occurred, despite the fact that this is a false and debunked claim that at least six in ten have endorsed in the last year.
