The Democrats may have really stepped in it this time as once again they fail to understand the American voters. For some odd reason, they thought the American people were all going to be excited over Pelosi’s January 6th Commission.
According to polling from Rasmussen Reports and it is not even close. Many more Americans want Congress to investigate the antifa/BLM riots more than the one on January 6th.
This news should bolster the Republicans’ case that any real investigation would include all riots. But, voters aren’t stupid. When they watched January 6th unfold, they did not see flames or bricks thrown at the police.
They know that riots throughout the country were many times more violent than the ones in Washington. They want to know why Democratic governors and mayors held the police back from enforcing the law.
According to Rasmussen Reports, “66% of Likely U.S. Voters think Congress should investigate last year’s violent protests, in which more than 2,000 police officers suffered injuries in the line of duty.”
Only 21%, or roughly 1 in 5 Americans, said they do not think that Congress should investigate the Black Lives Matter riots, while 13% said they were not sure.
“The number of voters who want Congress to investigate last year’s violent protests is higher than the 49% who say they support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s select committee investigation of the January 6 Capitol riot,” Rasmussen noted, adding that, “Forty-two percent (42%) say they don’t support the January 6 investigation.”
“Sixty-seven percent (67%) of whites, 64% of black voters, 66% of Hispanics and 62% of other minorities think Congress should investigate the 2020 riots in U.S. cities,” Rasmussen reported. “Seventy-five percent (75%) of Republicans, 60% of Democrats and 63% of voters not affiliated with either major party say Congress should investigate last year’s violent protests.”

The National Police Association, which helped conduct the survey, remarked that a poor response to the antifa/BLM riots led to an increase in crime as the criminals learned that it is likely they will never have to suffer the consequences for their actions.
They pointed out that the Democratic mayors that held back the police it was sending a signal to criminals that they could get away with anything short of murder.
Of course, in St Louis with DA Kim Gardner, you can get away with murder, too. Even if you confess.
