The survey of January 6 has a “huge impact on public opinion”

Former Vice President Al Gore said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday that the Jan. 6 House Select Committee was having a significant impact on public opinion.

Anchor Jonathan Karl asked, “What’s your reaction watching these hearings and what kind of impact do you think they’re going to have?”

Gore said: “I would like to say that Bennie Thompson and Liz Cheney and every member of this committee have done an incredible service to our democracy. I think these hearings have been the most compelling and effective since the Watergate hearings so long ago. And I think we’re also seeing a huge impact on public opinion in our country. They did an incredible job.

Karl said, “Have you ever, since that speech you gave, conceded an election, I don’t need to remind you, you won the popular vote, you were a few hundred votes away in Florida, when it was over you conceded and then you presided over George W. Bush’s electoral certification, the certification of his victory. As you watched what you saw unfold, did you think back to that.

Gore said, “Well, sure. All I did was what Winston Churchill said about the American people, the American people usually do the right thing after they have exhausted all the alternatives. The Constitution required what I did, and it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Was it personally difficult? Well, you know, when the fate of the country, the traditions and the honor of our democracy are at stake, it’s not really a difficult choice.
