A Tuesday poll reveals 72 percent of voters oppose “defunding the police” amid the crime wave sweeping the nation.
“Seventy-two percent of voters also said they oppose ‘defunding the police, and a slim 52 percent majority said they support the controversial practice of stop and frisk in urban areas to ‘deter gun crime.’ Fifty-six percent also say they oppose eliminating cash bail,” a Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll indicates.
The poll suggests 75 percent of voters want more police in their communities. Only 25 percent said they want fewer police on the ground.
