According to a new Rasmussen poll, Americans are opposing the Defund the Police movement.
Calls for defunding the police are being aggressively championed by the Black Lives Matter movement, but even among black Americans, 57% are opposed to defunding the police in their home community. Sixty-nine percent (69%) of whites and 62% of other minority adults share that view.
Sixty-one percent (61%) of all Americans believe that violent crime is likely to go up in communities that defund the police. Only 12% think violent crime is more likely to go down, while 20% predict it will remain about the same.
Americans understand the truth. They know police protect their communities from criminals. Americans want safe communities and that is why they are against defunding those who protect them.
