GET OVER IT: Just 5% Say Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Is One Of Most Memorable Parts Of Trump Presidency

A survey by The New York Times and Siena College has revealed the most prominent memories of Donald Trump’s presidency among registered voters, and perhaps surprisingly, only 5% of respondents cited the January 6, 2021, riot at the US Capitol or Trump’s alleged election subversion efforts as their top memory. Similarly, only 4% mentioned Covid-19 as one of their top memories of the Trump presidency.

Instead, 39% of respondents remembered Trump’s behavior, 24% recalled the economy, 9% mentioned immigration, and 5% cited foreign policy.

According to John Sides, a professor of political science at Vanderbilt, “It’s the salience of issues today that color the memories that people have of Trump.”

The survey revealed that over a third of respondents had negative memories of Trump’s presidency, while another third had positive memories. Negative memories often focused on Trump’s behavior, with comments like “He was the biggest liar ever” and “The terrible things he did to women.” Positive memories, on the other hand, frequently mentioned the economy, with responses like “The economy was a little better than it is now” and “Gas was cheap and we were using our own oil.”

Those who cited January 6 or COVID-19 as their top memory gave responses like “When he refused to turn over power” and “Total incompetence in handling the Covid-19 crisis.”

  1. How can anyone forget the half naked guy pretending to be a right wing witchdoctor running around fake horns and a broomstick pretending to be spear, announcing he was there is use his magical powers to overthrow the government of the United States.

    Silliest “insurrection” in history. Would be funny except the left-wing nut cases believed it.

  2. January 6th was the worst crime ever committed by a US president. Trump lost the election, but incited a mob to violence to try and stay in power. Despite what the headline writer wrote here it’s not something that we can get over – it makes him unfit to ever run a democracy.

  3. Reb Anonimity86,

    You probably are not very well educated judging by the spelling of your screen name but was Jan6 really the worst crime ever by a President? Was it worse than than the current occupant of the Black House forcibly raping Tara Reade?

    That is exactly what the criminal would say.
    The victims will never get over it.
    And neither will the deceased Ashli Babbitt or the 1000 other J6 participants who have been indicted and/or gone to jail.

  5. Anonimity86, you are a liar. Trump did not incite anyone to violence. And the small amount of violence that did happen was nothing at all compared to the months of deadly rioting and actual insurrection that you openly supported.

    Jackk we know from old as an inveterate liar and enemy of all that is right and good.
