Now, Benson buys into the idea that there's been a big shift in public opinion, indicating that many believe police use excessive force against African Americans (57% of Americans, 49% of whites). My own view is that those polling results reflect a number of factors. One is the reluctance of many Americans to avoid expressing opinions on controversial matters--or to state what they believe is the safe view. Another factor is the effect of the disinformation fed to the public. Most people have seen pictures of Floyd with a white cop's knee against his neck and believe that Chauvin killed, or even murdered, Floyd--despite the fact that the medical examiner's report shows that to be a false view. Far fewer, in my belief, have any particular knowledge of the actual details of what went down--drug use, the call to the paramedics, the autopsy report, etc. There's plenty of time before the election for the public to become more informed and to feed that into what happened.
UPDATE: Not to put too fine a point on it, I believe that when people realize that they've been had once again, that the George Floyd event is most likely something in the nature of the Trayvon Martin event, that realization will add to the backlash against the Left's violence and general craziness. The voting public will not see the Dems as the party that is likely to restore order, but--coupled with the Russia Hoax--the party of hoaxes designed to sow division.
Now here's the meat of what was found. As you'll see, despite sympathy for Floyd--likely based on disinformation--Americans are very unhappy with what followed:
56% of registered voters believe police behaving appropriately or not aggressively enough
Only 34% believe police too aggressive.
