POLL: Americans View Violence in American Cities as More of a Threat than the Storming of the Capitol

A Harvard/Harris poll conducted from February 23 to 25 revealed that Americans are not buying the corporate media hype surrounding the January 6th storming of the capitol. 1,778 registered voters were polled on this occasion. According to this poll’s findings, more Americans consider violence in American cities rather than the January 6th incident as more concerning. 

Journalist Ryan Girdusky tweeted about this poll on March 2, 2021. Girdusky summarized the main question “Which do you find more concerning – the violence in American cities during the summer or the riots at the Capitol on January 6th?” and listed off the results:

“55% Violence in the cities

45% January 6th riot”


Those polled were also asked if they “think the Proud Boys are a domestic terrorist group”, with 66% responding yes and 34% responding no.

On the question of Antifa being a terrorist group, the poll participants emphatically agreed that the radical left wing consortium of activist groups is a terrorist group. Girdusky posted the numbers on how Americans view Antifa: 

Do you think Antifa is a domestic terrorist group?

71% yes, they’re a terrorist group

29% no, no they’re not


Americans are frankly getting sick of the radical Left’s behavior and are now wanting their elected officials to bring some semblance of order to an America where corporations run wild and elected officials refuse to crack down on crime. Republicans have a clear law and order opening that they can exploit during the 2022 election cycle. Democrats are allergic to public safety and prefer to virtue signal about diversity and racism.

America First nationalists would be wise to take advantage of this political asymmetry.
