Biden’s America: 70 Percent of Voters Think Crime Is ‘Out of Control’
In President Joe Biden’s America, murders have risen 16 percent in big cities this year. Much to the chagrin of Democrats, some of whom a year ago were chanting with rioters to “defund the police,” U.S. voters are noticing.
According to a Rasmussen poll released on Tuesday in partnership with the National Police Association (NPA), 70 percent of U.S. voters believe crime is “out of control.” Only 22 percent disagree.
Ninety percent of voters are “concerned about the recent increase in violent crime,” including 64 percent who are “very concerned.” Only 10 percent are indifferent to skyrocketing crime rates.
A majority of those polled believe poor policy has to do with this year’s increase in violent crimes, including the elimination of cash bail requirements in some jurisdictions. Seventy-three percent of voters say letting accused violent criminals out of jail without bail while they wait for trial increases violent crime. Fourteen percent disagree, and 13 percent are not sure.
“Illinois this year became the first state to eliminate cash bail. Chicago’s police superintendent last week said it was an “outrage” that a federal judge released the man accused of supplying the gun used to murder Chicago Police Officer Ella French,” according to the poll report. – READ MORE
