Fewer Voters See War on Police Today

While police officers continue to fall in the line of duty around the country, fewer voters now think there is a war on police.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 43% of Likely U.S. Voters think there is a war on police in America today, down from 51% in 2016 and 58% a year earlier. Thirty-eight percent (38%) do not believe there is a war on police today, but 19% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
