Of course, the polling organization does it's best to bury the lead in it's own post. Can't upset the #BLM narrative.
What this poll tells me is that:
1. We police a society of schizophrenics. Check the cross tabs when they compare the percentages who believe the police treat minorities unfairly to the percentage who believe that police treat minorities fairly on the question of whether they want more police in their neighborhoods. A simple majority of Blacks who believe that minorities are treated unfairly by police
police presence. An overwhelming majority (86%) of Blacks who believe that minorities are treated unfairly by police want either more or the same amount of police presence compared to those who think that there should be fewer of the police that they believe are treating them unfairly.
2. We don't really have a police brutality/ abuse problem in this country. If we really did, you'd see more than 8% of the population nationally thinking that there should be less police. The vast majority want either the same or more police, which means that in their own cities and neighborhoods there is not a problem. real or imagined, with police brutality. What we have is a political agenda being pushed by a very few activists, aided and abetted by a bloodthirsty national media, turning a miniscule problem and a few random incidents into a national crisis.
