When asked if Trump's description of who is to blame is accurate:

  • 35 percent agreed

  • 68 percent of Republicans agreed
  • 21 percent disagreed
  • 10 percent of Democrats agreed
  • 83 percent disagreed
  • 34 percent of independents agreed
  • 53 percent disagreed

The majority of people disapproved of Trump's response to the attack, which voters were asked if they would call "domestic terrorism.”

  • 63 percent called the attack "domestic terrorism"
  • 27 percent disagreed
  • 51 percent of Republicans agreed
  • 38 percent disagreed
  • 73 percent of Democrats agreed
  • 20 percent disagreed
  • 63 percent of independents agreed
