About 17 percent of respondents said the former guy is solely responsible for the rioting, while 28 percent say he is mainly responsible. About 20 percent said he is somewhat responsible, up from 18 percent 18 months ago.
On the other side of the question, the percentage of Americans who say Trump was “not really” responsible for the Capitol riots rose to 35 percent, up from 29 percent in January 2021.
In January 2021, 52 percent of respondents said Trump was responsible, with 28 percent saying he was solely responsible and 24 percent saying he was mainly responsible.
A week after the deadly insurrection Trump defiantly told reporters his speech to supporters on January 6 was “totally appropriate” and he denied any responsibility for the violence that followed.

The percentage of Americans who say Trump was responsible for Jan 6 has dropped from 52% in Jan 2021 to 45% today.
