Americans’ confidence in police falls to its lowest level in nearly three decades, new Gallup poll shows

Sharing is Caring!

(CNN)Americans’ confidence in police has hit a new low — aided in large part by a growing gap between Black and White people about how much they trust officers.

Around 48% of Americans said they have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in police, down from 53% the previous year, according to a new Gallup poll.
The poll, released Wednesday, was conducted in the weeks after George Floyd’s killing in May, which mobilized thousands of protesters to march against police brutality and racism.
The results are part of Gallup’s annual Confidence in Institutions poll, a bellwether for Americans’ belief in the medical system, media, public schools, the presidency and more.
Gallup has polled Americans on their confidence in police for nearly 30 years. This is the lowest it’s dropped since the first policing poll in 1994 (the previous high was 64% in 2004), Gallup said.
