New polls show an erosion of support for Black Lives Matter, with a majority of Americans saying they believe a war is being waged against police officers.
Separate surveys by Pew Research and by Fox News found that support for BLM has dropped more than 10 percentage points in just a few months, Summit News reported.
Pew said that as “racial justice protests have intensified following the shooting of Jacob Blake, public support for the Black Lives Matter movement has declined.”
The polling company found that 55% now express at least some support for the movement, down from 67% in June.
The share who say they strongly support the movement is 29%, down from 38% three months ago.
Pew said the decline in support for BLM is particularly notable among white and Hispanic adults.
In June, 60% said they supported the movement at least somewhat. Now, only 45% express at least some support.
The share of Hispanic adults who support BLM has decreased 11 percentage points, from 77% in June to 66% today.
