Convicting Insurrectionists

I read that the grinning insurrectionist who posed with his feet up on Nancy Pelosi’s desk has pleaded not guilty. If, as seems to be the case, about a third of the people in the U.S. were in favor of overturning the election and converting our country into an authoritarian regime led by a sociopath, then is it not likely that the average jury of twelve citizens will contain at least one such ideologue willing to ignore clear evidence of guilt of anyone involved in the January 6th outrage at the Capitol? That surely is what the defendants’s lawyer is counting on.
