Nearly 3 in 5 Americans believe former President Donald Trump should have been convicted at the Senate impeachment trial that concluded with his acquittal Saturday, a new poll showed.

In a breakdown of the ABC News/Ipsos poll conducted after the trial verdict, the results showed that 58% said Trump should’ve been convicted and 41% said he shouldn’t have been.

The poll also found that 61% of respondents thought the charges against Trump were serious enough for impeachment, while 39% said they weren’t and that the trial never should have happened.

In other findings, the poll found that:

  • 77% believe the senators voted based on partisan politics, with 78% of Republicans and 76% of Democrats saying so; 23% said senators voted based on the facts.
  • 57% of respondents said evidence against Trump was either very strong or somewhat strong; 37% said the evidence was somewhat or very weak.
  • 43% of respondents thought the Senate trial reviewed information that was already known; 38% thought it provided new information.
  • 88% of Democrats and 64% of independents believe Trump should have been convicted; 14% of Republicans agree.

The poll’s margin of error for the entire sample was plus or minus 4.8 percentage points.
