New polling from TechnoMetrica suggests that the ‘defund police’ proposition advanced by left-wing rioters and protests is widely unpopular with the general public. The nation poll revealed that the public supports that exact opposite; increasing funding to their local police or sheriff’s department.
The polling showed that only around a minuscule figure of 11% of Americans support decreasing funding to their law enforcement agency. A solid 53% of Americans support increasing funding, and 26% support keeping funding levels as they’re currently maintained. Polls regarding funding for federal law enforcement were similar.
Leftists and the cultural elite have aggressively advanced a ‘defund police’ agenda as the nation is swept into the frenzy of race riots following the death of George Floyd. It looks more than likely that they’ve jumped the gun, swarming to support a policy proposition that is widely unpopular with the public and will likely be met with fierce political resistance should they move upon it.
More polling, such as a survey from Rasmussen Reports, suggests a similar wide majority of 59% of Americans oppose the notion of defunding the police.
The rioters and leftists are swept into a moment of political fanaticism, seeing the conservative and right-wing opposition rendered largely silence through the timidity of ineffective leaders and an unwillingness to defend the moral high ground from mass mobs of looters and ANTIFA criminals. But mass protest movements have been met with significant political backlash before, and it’s likely that many of the Americans incensed at the widespread destruction of urban communities will emerge from the political sidelines within the coming months and weeks as the intense fanaticism of the protest and riot movement declines in intensity.
If Republicans aren’t able to tap into the widespread sentiment against real-life plans to abolish local police, the political party is truly useless and impotent.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
