National favorability for BLM has dropped nine points since June


Tampa, FL – A Morning Consult/Politico poll released this morning found that national support for the violent Black Lives Matter movement has dropped nine points since June. According to the data, overall favorability for the group has dropped from 57 to 52 percent. Support for police has by contrast improved, rising 12 points since the unrest began over the death of George Floyd.

Earlier this week, an independent Trafalgar poll commissioned by Conservative Clergy of Color found favorability of BLM in Minnesota has dropped to 53 percent, startlingly similar to the national trend. Additionally, Trafalgar found that 45 percent of Minnesotans believe Black Lives Matter has made race relations worse. This, coupled with the national data, is a sign the winds are changing according to CCC founder Bishop Aubrey Shines.

“It’s interesting to how both on a national and state level, the support for Black Lives Matter is steadily decreasing,” said Bishop Shines. “I think the slow but sure trend is that folks are tired. They are tired of the chaos, tired of not being able to disagree openly with the thought policing that is propagated by the leaders of Black Lives Matter. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; most Americans agree with common sense police reform. What they don’t want is for a legitimate movement to be hijacked by anarchists whose only goal is to burn things down.”

As Black Lives Matter continues its war on American culture, Bishop Shines and the other founders of Conservative Clergy of Color will hold a press conference tomorrow over Zoom at 11:00 AM EST. They will denounce the violent, un-Christian tactics utilized by BLM that have worsened the racial divides in the U.S. as well as the hypocrisy of big companies that have thrown their support behind BLM while profiting off of slave labor in China.
