    Nearly Half of Republicans Think Chauvin Trial Verdict Was Wrong: Poll
    Benjamin Fearnow 3 hrs ago


    Three-quarters of Americans overall said they agree with the guilty jury verdict found for each of the three charges against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd. But among Republican voters, about half said the outcome was the "wrong verdict," according to a new survey.

    Protesters continue taking to the streets across America and around the world after the killing of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer Derek Chauvin that was kneeling on his neck during for eight minutes, was caught on video and went viral. During his arrest as Floyd pleaded, "I Can't Breathe".

    A CBS News/YouGov poll of more than 2,500 U.S. adults released Sunday found that white Americans' reactions to the Chauvin verdict were "largely related to partisanship."

    About 9 in 10 Democrats surveyed said Chauvin's conviction on all three counts—second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter—was the "right" decision. The 75 percent of independent voters who agreed it was the right verdict directly corresponded to the overall response from Americans. Eighty-two percent of people who identify as political moderates said they agree the guilty verdict was the right decision.

    But among Republican Party voters, 46 percent said it was the "wrong verdict," about five times the amount of disagreeing Democrats.

    Two-thirds of Republicans in a Morning Consult national tracking poll released last week actually flipped the view of the perpetrator or victim roles entirely. Sixty-six percent of GOP voters said "violence against the police" is a more serious issue.

    The 25 percent of overall Americans in the CBS News/YouGov poll who said they disagree with the Chauvin verdict also overwhelmingly responded that they "strongly" disagree with any ideas tied to Black Lives Matter (BLM). This one-quarter of Chauvin verdict dissenters disproportionately self-identified as white, conservative and male.

    About half of respondents overall, 48 percent, said they agree with the BLM movement's ideas.

    President Joe Biden's current approval rating of about 60 percent is almost identical to the percentage of Americans who said they approved of his general responses and handling of George Floyd's death and Chauvin's trial.

    Among white Americans, 70 percent responded that the three guilty convictions were the "right verdict," compared to 30 percent who said that was the "wrong verdict."

    Sunday's CBS News/YouGov pol also found that 39 percent of white Americans rate the job of their local police department as "very good," compared to 17 percent of Black Americans. Similar shares of white and Black Americans said their local officers are doing a "somewhat good job," with a heavier majority of Black respondents agreeing with that statement. Thirty percent of Black adults said their local police force is doing a "somewhat or very bad" job, compared to 18 percent of white people who said the same.

    That means 30% were willing to tell a stranger over the phone something can get them doxxed, fired, their house looted, and themselves killed.

    It's not like it's a safe thing to stand up against the woke mob.

    As you yourself like to gleefully point out stl1.

    I think it was unorthodox behavior on the cop and kind of looked painful. I wouldnt want this to happen to me. So yes.

    Yet he was on drugs. but the doctors said that stuff doesnt cause a person to just die of heart failure.

    it was difficult from any one of us to determine. non of us are doctors. so what difference does it make? I just think the rioting is not the way to change things.

    The difference was the extra 7 or 8 minutes that Chauvin's knee did not need to be on Floyd's neck. That is what killed him.

    Yeah, its weird you can get 3 charges of the same thing. three counts of murder basicly. he's not getting out so easily. though thanks to Maxine (Whts her name?) Because of things she said did qualify him for a misjudgement or whatever its called. he gets to be tried all over again with tax payers expenses giving his attorney enough time to come up with a new lie. or Im sure some other attorney paid by donations will get him off a lighter sentencing or work furlough or some shit.


    the BLOWBACK because she and others have to much influence which clearly affected the case and his defense making it seem unfair.

    whatever. Im staying neutral. I think he killed him but this is some weird shit

    It's not weird. Multiple counts are common and used to judge the severity of a crime. "Robert Simmons was charged on five counts of xxxx, two counts of xxxx." It's the law.
