More Americans think that former President Trump should face criminal charges in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol, according to a new poll.

The ABC News-Ipsos survey issued on Sunday discovered that 58 percent of respondents announced Trump should be criminally charged, while 40 percent of respondents declared Trump should not face charges.

Forty-six percent of respondents announced that they think Trump bears a great amount of responsibility for the Capitol attack, and 12 percent of those polled announced that the former president bears a good amount of responsibility. Seventeen percent of respondents, by comparison, stated Trump bears some amount of responsibility for what transpired on Jan 6., and 24 percent of those polled think Trump bears no responsibility for the Capitol insurrection.

A similar ABC News-Washington Post-ABC News survey published in early May discovered that 52 percent of those polled announced that Trump should be criminally charged for his role in the Jan 6 insurrection, while 42 percent disagreed.

The new survey comes amid a slew of public hearings being held by the House select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection, throughout which Trump backers stormed the building in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 election. The Capitol attack ended in the deaths of five people.

Sixty percent of those surveyed for the new poll announced that the House select committee investigating the attack is conducting a fair and impartial investigation, while 38 percent of respondents stated the panel isn’t conducting a fair investigation of the insurrection.

Nine percent of respondents announced in the poll that they have been after the committee hearings very closely, while 36 percent of those surveyed stated they have not been following the televised hearings closely.

The new ABC News-Ipsos survey was carried out from June 17 to June 18, with a total of 545 respondents. The margin of error was 4.5 percentage points.

The study was carried out in both English and Spanish. The data were weighted to adjust for gender by age, race/ethnicity, education, Census region, metropolitan status, household income, and party identification. The demographic benchmarks came from 2021 Current Population Survey (CPS) from the US Census Bureau. Party ID examples are from recent ABC News/Washington Post telephone polls. The weighting categories were as follows:
