Americans' Confidence in Police Falls to Historic…

Americans' Confidence in Police Falls to Historic Low, Poll Says . According to a recent Gallup poll, 48 percent of Americans have "quite a lot" of confidence in the authorities. That is the lowest percentage since Gallup started the poll in 1993 following California's Rodney King riots. In 2004, confidence in police reached a high of 64 percent. In 2019, 53 percent had faith in the police. . According to the latest poll results, there is a significant racial divide regarding Americans' confidence in police. Only 19 percent of Black adults have confidence, while 56 percent of White adults say the same. Gallup senior editor Jeff Jones says he is not surprised by the results considering recent calls to "defund the police" following the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others. There have also been massive nationwide protests led by the Black Lives Matter movement. The protests have led to budget cuts for enforcement agencies in Seattle and New York City. Jones adds that unless authorities adopt reforms, confidence may not rise in the foreseeable future
