Rasmussen Poll: Less Than Majority Think Chauvin's Guilty of George Floyd's Death

Published on Newsmax

Less than a majority of respondents are so far convinced that former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin should be found guilty of killing George Floyd last Memorial Day, a Rasmussen Poll found.

The national phone and web survey found that 48% of likely U.S. voters said Chauvin should be found guilty in his trial, currently beginning its second week. Twenty-one percent disagreed, while 31% said they weren't sure.

The poll of 1,000 likely voters was done March 30-31, and has a margin of error of three percentage points.

Chauvin has been charged with murder in the second and third degrees, as well as second-degree manslaughter for kneeling on Floyd’s neck, an action caught on cellphone camera. The footage went viral, and resulted in a summer of protests for racial justice and against the use of excessive force by police in communities across the nation.
