Voters Sour on Black Lives Matter But Question Fairness of Justice System

Most voters view the Black Lives Matter movement unfavorably. Perhaps in part that’s because they tend to think the U.S. justice system is less likely to be unfair to blacks than to Americans in general.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 37% of Likely U.S. Voters have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the Black Lives Matter movement, but that includes only 13% with a Very Favorable one. Fifty-three percent (53%) view the organization unfavorably, with 32% who share a Very Unfavorable opinion. Ten percent (10%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
