  • Monmouth University poll >> “76 percent of Americans — including 71 percent of white people — called racism and discrimination ‘a big problem’ in the United States.”

  • NPR/PBS/Marist poll: 62% call the demonstrations following George Floyd’s death, “mostly legitimate protests.”
  • NBC/WSJ Poll: 8-in-10 Americans believe the country is out of control.
  • NPR: “67% said Trump has mostly increased racial tensions, including 92% of Democrats, 73% of independents, 88% of Africans Americans and 63% of whites.”
