Poll: 77% Of Americans Concerned About Spike In Urban Crime — Blame Protests And Unemployment

Seventy-seven percent of Americans are concerned about the spike in crime occurring in cities across the U.S., according to a new poll out Monday.

The Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released to The Hill also found that 46% of Americans are worried out crime in their local communities.

“At the same time they see an increase of violence and crime and are concerned that prosecutors are not prosecuting the crimes — they blame the protests and the high unemployment when asked what is responsible for the spike in violence,” Harvard CAPS/Harris polling director Mark Penn told The Hill. “They also single out social media for being used to coordinate violence and in their view not doing much to curb it.”

The poll was an online survey of 1,932 registered voters that was completed between  July 21-23 and “weighted to reflect known demographics. As a representative online sample, it does not report a probability confidence interval,” according to The Hill.
