Nearly Half of Voters Consider BLM Protests as Riots

More voters consider Black Lives Matter demonstrations in three cities to be riots instead of protests, according to a Fox News poll released Sunday.

The poll found that 48% of likely voters viewed the demonstrations in New York, Portland, and Kenosha, Wisconsin, as riots, while 40% viewed the demonstrations as protests.

The poll also broke down views based on political affiliation, with 68% of Republicans calling the demonstrations riots. Only 30% of Democrats said the same.

Of the respondents, 39% blamed the violence on “left-wing radicals,” while 33% blamed “right-wing radicals.” Another 9% of respondents placed the blame on both sides.

The poll found that 52% of white voters called the demonstrations riots, but 62% of black voters and 48% of Hispanic voters viewed them as protests. (Read more from “Nearly Half of Voters Consider BLM Protests as Riots” HERE)
