So what's #YOURTAKE?

In the wake of a former Minneapolis police officer’s murder conviction in the death of George Floyd, Americans overwhelming agree with the guilty verdict, but a majority believe politics influenced the outcome.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% of American Adults agree with the jury’s guilty verdict for Derek Chauvin, including 46% who Strongly Agree. Only 20% disagree with Chauvin’s conviction, including 7% who Strongly Disagree. 

If you weren't one of the 1000 American Adults that Rasmussen Reports contacted between April 21 and 22, what are your thoughts on the matter?

Do you agree with the jury's decision to find the former Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter? 

In a CBS/YouGov poll released over the weekend, 49 percent of respondents that backed Donald Trump in 2020 disagreed with the guilty verdict, while a slim majority of Trump voters — 51 percent — agreed with the jury's decision.

The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on April 21-22, 2021 by Rasmussen Reports.

  1. Disagree with the verdict the Officer did nothing wrong Floyd should not have resisted arrest and gone peacefully in the back of the squad car he died of an overdose. You have to realize this was a big man 6ft6in 250lbs+ with a violent felony record high on drugs Chauvin had to restrain him. The jurors were pressured to convict already doxed by the media.

  2. This Trump supporter says Chauvin should have been found Not Guilty.
    I watched the entire trial. Stupid people believe only the so-called video cams, but did not pay attention to the defense points during the trial. One must consider that the jury was not sequestered during the proceedings but went home every day after the judge admonished them not to read newspapers about the trial nor watch the boob tube.
    Our Republic dies a suicide at the hands of low IQs, leftist fanatic, antifa killers and dolts, while druggies misfits, women beaters and welfare freaks are admired and deified.
    Screwballs at Northeastern Illinois University created a George Floyd Scholarship (for minorities, of course).

  3. Floyd was a drug addict with a criminal history.
    He was not supposed to be where he was when he was stopped by the cops.
    To make a “hero” out of someone like Floyd is a bigger crime than what Chauvin was accused of.
    AND, Chauvin was charged with what amounts to killing the same guy THREE TIMES!
    It appears to me that the prosecutors were so afraid of the Black Lives Matter Marxists that they threw as many
    handfuls of feces as possible at the wall to see if ANY of it would stick.
