More than half of the nation’s voters think former President Donald Trump should be indicted over his role on Jan. 6, according to a new poll.
The Harvard CAPS-Harris poll was first released by The Hill on Monday.

“Despite a majority that would indict him, most questions on January 6th split down the middle along partisan lines, and it’s not clear they would convict him,” Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris poll, said.
“There is far greater support for healing the country over indicting politicians — but Trump is seen as bearing a good share of personal responsibility,” he added.
The poll shows that most voters, or 61 percent, see the DOJ investigation and other related probes as politically motivated.

The news comes as the House committee investigating Jan. 6 continues to pursue an investigation, though 69 percent of voters in the poll said the nation should move on from the Jan. 6 riot.
The poll is bad news for Trump, but also shows most Americans are ready to be done talking about Jan. 6 and focus on other issues.
