Rasmussen Reports, April 11, 2019

Chicago officials are still battling over the decision not to prosecute actor Jussie Smollett, with one city councilman last weekend declaring that the city’s police union is “the sworn enemy of black people.” But Americans overwhelmingly reject the charge that most cops are racist and continue to give high marks to the performance of their local police.

Just 10% of all American Adults think most police officers are racist. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% disagree and say they are not racist. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
