A recent poll conducted by Pew Research discovered that an overwhelming percentage of American DO NOT WANT the police defunded. In fact, more Americans (31%) want to see funding for the police increased than those who want to see funding for the police decreased (25%).
And it appears that the majority of those who want police funding decreased, are not really convinced it’s a great idea, because they only want a token cut.
The Blaze explains:
A plurality of Americans, 42%, said that they want the funding for police to stay the same. Another 31% of Americans said they want funding for police to increase.
Both of those groups are larger than the group that called for the defunding of police only 25% of those polled.
Of those who want the police defunded, 12% said they wanted police funding to decrease by a “a lot,” while 14% said they wanted police funding to decrease “a little.”
The poll suggests that a small and extreme left wing minority is driving the agenda pushing for the defunding of police across America.
