The Gallup polls finds for the first time “confidence in the police fell five points to 48%, making the first time in the 27 year trend that this reading is below the majority level.” My opinion is you can make almost any poll to favor your personal opinion. I have asked a lot of people about the police. Most people want and need police to keep the criminals lock away.
If you go to any BLM or Antifa protest and talk to them you will sadly get negative opinions. Now if you go to Newport Beach or Huntington Beach in California you will get almost every person saying they love the police. I am a Democrat and I went to a trump Rally and all the Republicans there were nice to me. They were dressed nice and were happy to let me take pictures freely. There was police presence with no arrests. Note: I ran for President of the United States in 2012 and 2020 and I am a Democrat so this point about the police was an honest report.
