A new poll found that only 32% of Seattle residents support defunding the police yet the Seattle City Council is going to push it anyway.
Shock poll shows only 32% support to defund Seattle police by half, yet the Council pushes forward anyway. This the third poll showing how few people support the radical, dangerous plan. https://t.co/rH4eOIz352

While some media outlets picked up on the poll for showing 53% general support for defunding the policy, the details reveal it’s not what activists or the council had hoped for.
Only 32% support the council’s approach to cut the funding to the Seattle police by 50% despite loud, dangerous riots and protests pushing the idea. That’s only 11% higher than voters, at 21%, saying they don’t want any cuts to the SPD at all.
A full 43% of voters support the mayor’s approach, which has been best defined as a 5% cut, though the mayor’s office revised the plan for between 10% and 20% defunding. This approach just moves peas around a plate: It just shifts money around without actually providing substantial cuts to services or personnel from the SPD.
