Despite weeks of anti-police protests, a clear majority of Americans agree with President Trump that the vast majority of officers are doing a good job.
Respondents were asked by Rasmussen: “Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: “Our police have been letting us live in peace, and we want to make sure we don’t have any bad actors in there. [But] 99% of them are great, great people.”
56% of likely U.S. voters agree with Trump while 30% don’t agree. 14% remain unsure.
The poll also found that only 16% of Americans think a police-free society is a likely outcome.
Movements to defund police departments have gained traction across the country following the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis cop.
