An unbelievable 46 percent of Republicans polled after Derek Chauvin was found guilty have a problem with the jury’s verdict, and many claimed that Chauvin was innocent and hope the next Republican president will pardon the convicted killer cop.
A CBS News/YouGov poll of more than 2,500 Americans noted the stark partisan differences of opinion related to last week’s verdict in the trial of former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd.
According to the poll, 90% of Democrats believe that Chauvin’s conviction on all three counts — for second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter — was the “right” verdict.
Another poll, conducted by Morning Consult, noted that 66% of Republican voters believe that “violence against the police” is a more serious issue than violence against Black Americans.
Tucker Carlson himself said on Fox News that “everyone understood perfectly well the consequences of an acquittal in this case. After nearly a year of burning and looting and murder by [the Black Lives Matter movement], that was never in doubt.”
