Violent Crime Now Almost as Important to American Voters as Coronavirus

Numbers suggest relentless riots are helping Trump in the polls.

As riots and unrest continue to dominate the headlines, a new poll has found that almost as many American voters now view violent crime as an important election issue compared to coronavirus, something that is likely to help President Trump.

While cities like Portland have seen riots on a nightly basis for a virtually unbroken time period, the mayhem has now spread to Kenosha, Wisconsin, where two people were fatally shot last night.

The bedlam is now reflected in the polls, with Americans becoming increasingly concerned about law and order.

“A sizable 59 percent of voters in the survey indicate that violent crime, which President Trump has framed as happening in Democrat-controlled cities, is a “very important” factor in casting their ballots,” writes Rusty Weiss.

He cites a Pew poll which found that coronavirus has dropped to the fourth most important issue with 63 percent concerned.

When broken down along party lines, 74 percent of Trump supporters view violent crime as an important issue compared to 46 percent of likely Biden voters.

As we highlighted earlier, CNN host Don Lemon appears to be worried that the relentless riots and unrest that have plagued American cities for the last three months are aiding Trump.

“I think Democrats are ignoring this problem or hoping that it will go away…Joe Biden may be afraid to do it…He’s got to address it. He’s got to come out and talk about it,” said Lemon.

A CNN poll taken earlier this month also found that Biden’s lead over Trump had dropped 10 points since early June.

Meanwhile, the public’s diminishing concern about coronavirus also appears to be helping President Trump’s approval rating in the polls.

A new poll released today that was taken immediately after the DNC found that “Trump had a 48% approval rating and a 52% disapproval rating among likely voters in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.”

This compares with a 46%/54% approve/disapprove split two weeks ago, when fears about COVID-19 were slightly higher.

Former CIA Officer: “Violence Will Explode” if Trump Wins Re-Election

Unrest will continue even if Biden wins because mob will try to take full control of his administration.

A former CIA ops officer who spent decades undercover in the Middle East and South Asia warns that “violence will explode” if Trump wins re-election and will probably continue anyway even if Biden wins.

In an op-ed for Revolver News, Sam Faddis characterizes the recent riots, described as “mostly peaceful” by the media, as nothing less than an “insurrection.”

Faddis says that the rioters are not merely unorganized mobs, but a “manifestation of years of preparation, organization, and sponsorship from a vast network of foundations and front organizations,” including George Soros’s Open Society.

Faddis points out that the rioters have openly stated their goal, the “abolition of the United States as we know it and its replacement with a Marxist state.”

The former CIA officer predicts another wave of violence if Trump wins re-election, but also warns that the unrest will continue even if Biden wins because the revolutionaries will seek to take full control of his administration.

“That is why it is profoundly delusional to believe the riots of the past three months will end with the November election. They will not,” writes Faddis.

“Should President Trump win, his victory will immediately be declared invalid and illegitimate by the mob, and the level of violence will explode. If Biden wins, the people and groups tearing this nation apart will consider him their puppet and will accelerate their efforts at revolution. If Biden proves unwilling or unable to accommodate them, he will suffer the same fate as Portland mayor Ted Wheeler, who endures antifa harassment of his home as the price of failing to submit.”

“This is not about reform. It is about revolution, and revolutions don’t care about elections,” he concludes.

As we previously highlighted, earlier this month a pro-Biden polling firm announced that the results on election night could show Trump winning in a landslide, but that after all the mail-in votes were counted, Biden would be victorious with room to spare.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg also said that Americans must get used to the idea that the election result may take “weeks” to be confirmed after voting on November 3 and that “civil unrest” is likely.

Trump supporters see this as clear intention that Democrats will refuse to honor the election result if the president wins.

Twitter has also announced it will remove any tweets claiming victory before election results are certified, which will essentially blocked Trump supporters from challenging the legitimacy of any delay in announcing the winner.

Canvassing the campus of George Washington University, Campus Reform found that the vast majority of college students believe that the nation-wide rioting and looting being carried out by black lives matter agitators is ‘justified’.

“In my opinion, it definitely can be justified given that’s the only way we can get our message out there,” one student commented.

“I’m in support of the riots personally, whatever you need to do to be heard,” another added.

Others said riots are “inevitable,” claiming that “if change is gonna come there’s gonna be some violence.”

Another stated “Honestly, I think it’s justified. People in power have stolen so much more. Anything that any of them loot will never match up to what’s been stolen from them,” while another student claimed rioting is “part of the healing process.”

Others complained that ‘White nationalists’ are just as violent.

“In the case of many white nationalist protests that have gotten violent, the conversation has never been about their looting or the violence they bring. It’s easier to characterize people of color as violent than white people I guess,” one student said.

A new study out of Princeton University reveals that 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States have experienced riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement since late May.

Despite the leftist media’s obsession with calling the fiery violence ‘mostly peaceful’, the data indicates that most cities are seeing some violent unrest.

Democrats completely ignored the unrest for months, before polls indicated that favourability was tanking and they adopted the ‘this is Trump’s America’ mantra.

The rise of violence in large cities is a contributing factor in an ongoing exodus. A recent survey carried out by the Manhattan Institute found that two in five New Yorkers want to leave the city.

A new study out of Princeton University reveals that 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States have experienced riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement since late May.

Despite the leftist media’s obsession with calling the fiery violence ‘mostly peaceful’, the data indicates that most cities are seeing some violent unrest.

The intent of the study appears to have been to bolster the ‘mostly peaceful’ narrative, as it notes that the perception of the trouble may have been influenced by “political orientation and biased media framing” as well as “disproportionate coverage of violent demonstrations.”

The findings are difficult to ignore, however, with almost every major city having experienced rioting.

Of the biggest 50 cities, only Fresno, California, and Mesa, Arizona have remained unaffected, according to the data.

In addition, when extended to the largest 100 cities by population, the study found that 74 have experienced riots.

Democrats completely ignored the unrest for months, before polls indicated that favourability was tanking and they adopted the ‘this is Trump’s America’ mantra.

The rise of violence in large cities is a contributing factor in an ongoing exodus. A recent survey carried out by the Manhattan Institute found that two in five New Yorkers want to leave the city.

Figures show that shootings have doubled and murders are up 50 per cent on the same period last year in New York.
