The American people have shown support for the Black Lives Matter movement over the last few years, but that is changing.
A new poll finds a significant drop in support for the group which an increasing number of Americans see as radical and leftist.
The findings of this poll certainly aren’t based on the media, which overwhelmingly supports the movement and defends it enthusiastically.
The New York Post reports:
Support for Black Lives Matter declining across US, poll shows
Support for Black Lives Matter in the US has declined in the 18 months since George Floyd was killed, a new poll shows.
The poll, conducted by Civiqs — an online survey organization associated with the progressive media group Daily Kos — found 44 percent of respondents currently support the BLM movement.
It has dropped from the high of 52 percent of respondents who supported BLM after Floyd was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis in May last year.
Meanwhile, opposition to BLM has spiked over the same timeframe — 44 percent currently oppose it, which is up from 28 percent in the days after Floyd’s killing.
Eleven percent neither support nor oppose BLM and 1 percent remain unsure, according to the poll.
More than half of the respondents who oppose BLM are white, and 82 percent who support the movement are black, the poll found.
Maybe this also has something to do with the movement’s leaders enriching themselves and buying large homes.

“Trained Marxist” and BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors Reportedly Buys $1.4m Estate
This apparently is Cullors’ FOURTH house. Marxism and Black Lives Matter activism pay very well in capitalist America. https://t.co/dteAOgrnLw pic.twitter.com/1PqEvNGjMA

Who knew Marxism is so lucrative?
