Voters Still See ‘Antifa’ As More Trouble Than Good

So-called “antifa” protesters are in the news again, following the recent violent beating of a gay journalist in Portland, Oregon. Voters are less critical of the antifa movement these days, but they still tend to think it’s just looking for trouble.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 22% of Likely U.S. Voters share a favorable opinion of the antifa protestors, with 10% who view them Very Favorably. That’s little changed from past surveying. Forty-three percent (43%) still have an unfavorable view of the protesters, including 30% with a Very Unfavorable one.  But that’s down from 58% and 40% respectively two years ago. One-in-three voters (35%) now are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
