Rasmussen released new polling data showing the majority of Americans are concerned about rising crime.
“A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 89% of Likely U.S. voters are concerned about the problem of violent crime in America, including 64% who say they’re Very Concerned,” Rasmussen said. “That’s a significant increase from July, when 79% were concerned, including 49% who were Very Concerned, about the violent crime problem.”
On top of that, voters don’t have faith in Democrats on the crime issue.
“An overwhelming majority of voters are increasingly concerned about violent crime and, by a wide margin, they trust Republicans more than Democrats to deal with the problem,” Rasmussen said.
The poll comes after at least a dozen cities have reported breaking their record for homicides this year.
“Americans are sick and tired of being terrorized by violent criminals!” the National Fraternal Order of Police said on Twitter. “The revolving door of our criminal justice system has led to a 40-60% spike in homicides & violent crime. If law & order is not a priority for your elected officials, vote them out! We need change!”
Republicans have laid the blame at the feet of Democrats, who have advocated for defunding local departments around the nation and allowed rioters to go largely unopposed in the wake of the murder of George Floyd.
Data shows that since those riots, violent crime has skyrocketed.
“Homicides have reached all-time highs in 12 cities across our nation – all run by Democrats (shocker) – and yet, Kamala is discussing how she’s redecorated her office…” said Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.
