Not a lot of good news in this poll for America. Republicans are going along with the media narrative and Democrats have gone insane.
Here’s a key data point from the Reuters/Ipsos poll.
11% of Democrats strongly support violent protests after a police brutality grievance like the Floyd one, and 18% somewhat support it.
While a majority of Democrats reject violence, if you were wondering why so many Dem elected officials seem unwilling to crack down on the protests and continue defending them, it’s because somewhat under a third of Democrats think they’re justified.
Under a quarter of Democrats also disagree with the idea that looting and burning undermines the case of the protesters.
That’s a minority, but it’s a quarter of Democrats.
This should be an election issue. The rioters and looters are getting a significant amount of support from a political party.
