Shock Poll Result: Most Americans Don’t View Black Lives Matter Favorably

Most Americans don’t have a favorable view of the Black Lives Matter movement, a poll released Wednesday reveals.

Fifty-seven percent of Americans view Black Lives Matter negatively, while only 43 percent have a positive view of the movement, the Harvard- Harris poll released to the Hill revealed. The views on Black Lives Matter were also strongly divided along racial lines — 83 percent of black people had a positive view of the organization compared to 35 percent of white people who do.

    Admittedly I am kind of shocked.43% positive?

    • I was less socked than awed.

      I am surprised it is that high also. What is the percentage of blacks in the US 20%? That means a lot of stupid white people support BLM.

    I think most Americans are more concerned about black crimes than black lives.

  • 83 to 35in the black community? Why, that’s an improvement over the 90% who celebrated the OJ verdict. Then too, if you take into consideration that the name of the organization is a rather anodyne slogan, if you read it without the subtext, that’s actually pretty encouraging. Not great, mind you, but encouraging nevertheless.

    That 35% of white people are either self-hating marxists or have not the least clue concerning BLM. As for the percentage of blacks approving, I am not surprised.

      Of course they’re marxists, but they’re not self-hating, they’re just supporting their fellow marxists.
