This summer as riots unfolded in cities across the country, Democrats mostly remained silent, or egged them on.
During their national convention, they never even mentioned the subject.
Now they are scrambling to disown them.
Even Nancy Pelosi is denouncing them
Take a look:
Speaker Pelosi: "We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy. That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting. They should be prosecuted. That is lawlessness." pic.twitter.com/Xq89RLR70f

After months of rioting Pelosi suddenly realizes that's a problem. Must have seen some poling data?

Do you know why Democrats have changed their tune? The answer is pretty simple. The riots are driving voters right into Trump’s arms.
From Rasmussen Reports:
Trump’s The Choice For Voters Who’ve Experienced Violent Protests
Three-out-of-four voters who’ve had violent anti-police protests in their community rate those protests important to their vote in the presidential election. Among these voters, a sizable majority like the job President Trump is doing.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters have had anti-police protests in their community this summer.
Among all voters, 65% say the violent protests are important to their vote in the presidential election this fall, with 41% who say it’s Very Important.
Among those who have had violent protests in their community, even more (76%) rate them important to their vote, including 54% who say they are Very Important. Sixty-three percent (63%) of these voters Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing versus 35% who Strongly Disapprove.
This is the only reason Democrats suddenly care.
It’s not because lives have been ruined, it’s just because they know it’s polling badly.
How pathetic is that?
