Data: SurveyMonkey; Chart: Danielle Alberti/Axios

Two in three Americans — including the majority of moderate and liberal Republicans — favor creating a bipartisan commission to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to a new SurveyMonkey poll for Axios.

Why it matters: Conservative Republicans hold enough influence to block criticism and investigations of Donald Trump in Congress, but that stance could put them at odds with many suburban and college-educated Republican voters ahead of next year's midterms.

By the numbers: 65% of respondents overall said they'd support such a commission. That includes 90% of Americans who align with Democrats, 73% who consider themselves independents and 42% of Republicans.

  • 55% of moderate and liberal Republicans — but just 37% of those identifying as conservative or very conservative — were on board.
  • A commission is more popular with women than men — and more popular with college-educated Americans than non-college-educated.
  • 78% of Democrats said their own party is united, while just 58% of Republicans saw themselves as unified.

Between the lines: In a dynamic that's changed little since January, only 22% of Republicans say they believe President Biden legitimately won the election. Another 20% aren't sure and 58% don't accept it.

Methodology: This SurveyMonkey online poll was conducted May 20-21, 2021, among a national sample of 2,695 U.S. adults.

  • Respondents for this survey were selected from the more than 2 million people who take surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day.
  • The modeled error estimate for this survey is ±3.0 percentage points for the national sample. Data have been weighted for age, race, sex, education and geography using the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey to reflect the demographic composition of the United States age 18 and over.

Biden's political calculations

President Biden aimed three numbered messages at three specific audiences during Sunday afternoon remarks on Afghanistan.

To Fox News viewers: "One, planes taking off from Kabul are not flying directly to the United States. They're landing at U.S. military bases and transit centers around the world."

Jan. 6 committee subpoenas Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell

The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot released its latest round of subpoenas on Tuesday evening, this time focusing on several of former President Trump's lawyers, including Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, and former adviser Boris Epshteyn.

Why it matters: The panel said the four individuals subpoenaed were involved in efforts publicly promote Trump's unfounded claims of election fraud as well as efforts to "disrupt or delay" the certification of the election's results.

U.S. warns Russia may attack Ukraine from Belarus

The U.S. believes that Russia may use joint military exercises inside Belarus as cover for an invasion of Ukraine from the north, according to a senior State Department official.

Why it matters: New deployments to the Belarus-Ukraine border in the coming weeks — in addition to the 100,000 Russian troops already encircling Ukraine from the north, east and south — could allow Russia to open up a new front less than 100 miles from the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.
