Capitol Riot AP Poll

Less than half of GOP say 1/6 was very violent: AP-NORC poll

WASHINGTON (AP) — The fighting — so primitive and ferocious that one Capitol Police officer described it as “medieval” and another as a “trip to hell” — left more than 100 law enforcement personnel injured, some beaten with their own weapons.

Video cameras captured the violence live, with rioters clubbing officers with flag polls and fire extinguishers, even squeezing one between doors as he begged for his life.

Capitol Riot-AP Poll-Party

A new AP-NORC poll shows about two-thirds of Americans, including most Democrats, describe the attack of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 as extremely or very violent. Only about 4 in 10 Republicans say that.

Yet nearly a year after the Jan. 6 siege only about 4 in 10 Republicans recall the attack by supporters of former President Donald Trump as very violent or extremely violent, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. About 3 in 10 Republicans say the attack was not violent, and about another 3 in 10 say it was somewhat violent.

Starbucks is requiring its 228,000 U.S. employees to disclose their vaccination status by Jan. 10.
