In stark contrast to what the liberal media would like you to believe, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Americans – including Democrats – support the military being called in to assist police forces in stopping violent riots.
The Morning Consult Poll finds that an astonishing 58 percent of Americans would like to see cities call in the military to help put an end to the vandalism, looting, arson, and in some cases, blatant assaults against peaceful citizens, sparked by the George Floyd case.
Of those 58 percent, 33 percent say they “strongly support” the idea, while 25 percent “somewhat” support it.
Even Democrats, by a margin of 48 percent to 43 percent, are down with the idea.
58% of Americans support sending the military in to supplement police force to quell riots

Trump Mocks Governors Who Refuse The Help
President Trump has put governors and local leaders who are refusing to accept help while their cities burn on notice.

He took particular aim at New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who thus far has refused help from the National Guard while “thugs” have been destroying New York City.
“New York was lost to the looters, thugs, Radical Left, and all other forms of Lowlife [and] Scum,” Trump tweeted. “The Governor refuses to accept my offer of a dominating National Guard.”
The President would later add that failing to accept help to quell the riots would be a “horrible and deadly mistake.”
So true! https://t.co/5w17du8qk6

More Support For the President
The same poll also showed support for bringing in the National Guard to stop the riots – and it’s not even close.
71 percent of registered voters supported calling in the Guard, while a mere 18 percent opposed the measure.
“If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will quickly deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” Trump stated.

The liberal media, in response, was quick to label Trump a dictator for even suggesting the use of the military to restore law and order.
Poor Don Lemon of CNN practically had circulation cut off to his fingers from clutching his pearls so tightly.

This poll is a solid reminder that no matter what you hear over and over again being pumped out by the mainstream media, it isn’t an accurate depiction of what is really going on in America.
It’s just a projection of their obviously biased and ill-educated minds.
