Skip to comments.Poll Shows Americans Don't Want Zimmerman Arrested
Posted on 03/30/2012 5:40:54 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Weeks of one-sided stories pushed by professional agitators like Al Sharpton have had an effect on public opinion. Last weekend, (3/25-3/26) CNN conducted a poll which showed 73% of adults believed Trayvon Martin's shooter George Zimmerman should be arrested. Now a new poll by WPA opinion dynamics finds that number has dropped sharply in just the last few days:
Our poll conducted Tuesday and Wednesday revealed that just 48% of Americans believe he should be arrested. Our poll matched the partisan distribution of the CNN poll, so this is a real and significant change in opinion as more key details came out over a few brief days. In addition to matching the partisan distribution, the WPA poll used the same language CNN had used previously: Based on what you have read or heard about this incident, do you think the police should or should not arrest George Zimmerman for shooting Trayvon Martin?
Should Not 16%
What this shows is the effect of telling Zimmerman's side of the story....

have no idea what’s going on
If Zimmerman wanted to shoot him straight out, I'm sure he had the opportunity. It's not what this was about...and I'd sure like to know what Tray had in his pockets.
Once the recent photos and background of the victim were released by the Brits, things went the other way. It not getting the traction the Liberals were hoping for. Thank you Daily Mail.
More like they are afraid of being called a racist.
48% is still very high
The truth takes awhile to get out there with the current media situation. The lie is already half way around the world before the truth has its pants on.
I wonder what the poll results would be if only blacks were asked? Upper 90% most likely.
If I were Zimmerman, I would beg to be arrested ONLY if the trial were shown live on Black Entertainment Network (BET). Otherwise, he will live the rest of his life looking over his shoulder.
If Martin had managed to kill Zimmerman instead, would he have been caught? There were witnesses, but did anyone see him well enough to give a description to the police (who were already on their way)? If not, he could have gone back to Miami and possibly gotten away with it...at least until he bragged one time too many about killing a cracker.
What do you expect. More than 48% have IQs that are below average.
I saw Trayvon® on the cover of the latest People magazine while standing in line at the grocery store. Naturally, they used a years-old "pre-thug" photo.
I’d like to see a poll on how many Americans would like to see Al Sharpton arrested for inciting a riot. That would be interesting......
And those living in Lake Wobegon
And those living in Lake Wobegon
Hispanics a bit more
Whites in 105 to 110 range
Some Orientals...Certain Chinese... Japs....some Koreans...a few points above White mean
Its there....we all know it....we ignore it now but the ramifications are reflected as a major contributor to cultural decline
This myth of sameness could destroy the West and us as the shared culture nation we are
Albeit enabled by high IQ whites and Asians who ashamed of being blessed
Voluntary self destruction of a superior cultural notion which has been this country since our noble founders is a bitter play to watch unfold and leave our kids
We are bound to become an oligarchic brown polyglot like Brasil...ungovernable....perilous....with the very rich living protected as in a state of war unable to venture outside safe zones
Sorta like Chicago or Memphis
It is more than 48%.
More like 75%.
Well at least, unlike the Sharpton brigades, they are willing to admit they don’t know enough about the case.
But I’d count “unsure” as “against arrest” anyway. Assuming most people would want to be pretty sure before arresting somebody...
People magazine was really disgustingly biased this week. I think this is the last time I buy People.
Mogadishu on the Mississippi. See America’s future today.
The unsure ones have an open mind and are not gullibly led by sensationalism.
They as well as a large number of the 48% who are slower on the uptake will eventually be convinced that Mr.Zimmerman acted in self defense as the facts emerge.
Neither does Obama or Holder.
I’d like to see a poll on whether or not due process is in order.
>> demonstrated an IQ mean in low to mid 80s
>> Hispanics a bit more
>> Whites in 105 to 110 range
Seriously that low? I kinda expected the average to be around 120, but I don’t track IQ much.
Careful there! Questions from the Verbal, Mathematical, Spatial, Visualization, Classification, Logic, and Pattern recognition categories have been determined to be racially biased. A non-biased test would include skills such as hand signals, spray painting, walking with pants below your butt, profanity, and pretending you didn't see anything,
Nobody but a few will study this after the way the Bell Curve folks and Rushton have been treated
The data is indisputable....the mere cultural observance profound
Here is one link....page two
i bought a copy of a recent National Geographic mag on 100 greatest science and tech discoveries of human history
all but 3 were Western Caucasian discoveries
1 was Persian ...an alternative medical code of treatment?
Chinese for the abacus and gunpowder which they used for rockets and fireworks before we go hold of it
the rest was Western Civ
I was surprised that nowadays very liberal NGS would print such truth which was of course commonplace in my youth
I have pals who have post grad in Cultural and Social Anthropology
the most brainwashed folks I know...they have been taught for a decade or more that whites stole just about everything from nonwhites
that is the essence of study today
Yeah, I’m familiar with the perceptions on that data.
I was never much concerned about the impact providing things were offset with good values. But with the decline of standards in the mix, we end up with a fairly grim situation.
How are you wardaddy? Good to hear from you.
So sorry, I was making a smart alec response on a serious thread. 48% below average IQ - a variation of the Lake Woebegon Effect - half above average, half below average.
when I was young the black community is general did have decent values...even though yes...it was a time of strife and I was in it...Jackson MS
ghettos up north were just really starting to crumble..early 60s...and spread
but blacks had real families as a rule...around 75-80 percent did...the opposite of today
were very Christian...especially the women
were educated better and longer...and yes...in segregated schools and colleges
and thug culture was non existent
they did have more issues than the white community...always had...revolving around the young adult male behavior like now but it was manageable..
and they were non hostile...at all...they were always kind to me...and i was in contact with blacks from birth on daily and in large numbers...something white freepers who homogeneous areas who like to bash us down here know little about
I never felt that stare as a white kid till on a subway in NYC in 1980
it’s very bad down here now...not like Detroit yet but getting there
