Despite what most Democrats and many mainstream media networks claim, the American people just don’t care about January 6th. As Democrats desperately cling to the idea that January 6th and the public hearings will result in Americans casting their votes for Democrats this fall some lawmakers have already accepted that is not the case.
Politico correspondent Betsy Woodruff Swan said that two Democrat members of Congress have admitted in off-the-record conversations that “nobody gives a bleep about January 6th.”
During a panel discussion on “Meet the Press NOW,” NBC anchor Chuck Todd cited a Quinnipiac poll that asked Americans if they thought that former President Trump truly believed voter fraud affected the 2020 elect or if he was knowingly pushing falsehoods to fulfill his own political agenda.
According to Fox News:
“Which brings me to the all-important question, Betsy: Does the Jan. 6 hearing break through at all? Is this more proof that it does not?” Todd asked.
‘I don’t think it does,” Swan responded. “I’ve talked to two separate Democratic members of Congress over the last couple of weeks about Jan. 6, obviously can’t say who, and both of them have said offhandedly, nobody gives a bleep about January 6th when they’re talking about their districts and the way that elections play out.”
“The reality is – obviously, it’s a very important issue. Obviously – like I’ve been covering this nonstop for the last year. It’s important, it’s a key part of understanding American history and the democratic trajectory that this country is on. It is also true at the same time and not at all contradictory that it’s not a top-tier voting issue for people who are figuring out who they’re going to support during the midterms,” Swan told Todd. “Top-tier issues are material concerns. How are people paying their mortgages? How much does it cost to get milk and bread? How much does it cost to get gas?”
Swan added, “Do these hearings result in different electoral outcomes for Democrats? I have yet to see any actual evidence that they do.”
