Large Chasm With How Whites, Blacks View Police

Poll Shows Big Racial Gap in View of Police

Race plays a major role in how Americans view the police, a new poll shows.

Four out of every five White voters express some level of confidence that police officers in their community do a good job enforcing the law, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. That drops to 58% among Black voters.

The racial split is even greater on the question of whether the police treat Whites and Blacks equally, the poll found. Some 69% of White voters expressed confidence that law enforcement officials gave equal treatment to people of both races, while just 28% of Black voters held that view. Instead, 69% of Black respondents expressed “just some” or “very little” confidence that police officers treat Whites and Blacks equally.
