Poll: 27% of Oregon Residents Support Abolishing The Police

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


What’s The Matter With Oregon?

In Oregon, abolishing the police is now a mainstream issue and has gained traction in the Democratic base. Young Democrats support the idea. This explains why Portland has become a national laughingstock.

Portland Tribune:

“Abolishing the police — once a fringe issue — has become a mainstream, albeit minority opinion.

After a year of unrest that pitted Portland protesters against cops, around one-quarter of Oregonians now support eliminating their local police department and creating alternative teams of social workers, drug counselors and mental health experts, a new poll says.

A total of 27% of survey respondents strongly or somewhat support that proposal, according to research by the Oregon Values and Beliefs Center — but 67% oppose it and 7% are unsure.”

Police funding is about as divisive a topic as can be found among Oregonians,” the center said in a briefing. “In the wake of the George Floyd protests of 2020, calls for ‘abolition’ of police departments increased, especially on social media. Among Oregonians broadly, this call represents a minority view today.” …

Support for law enforcement abolition is drastically higher among the young. About 45% percent of those under age 30 support the idea, compared with roughly 13% of those over age 55. Those who identify as Black, Indigenous or people of color offer more support (34%) than whites (26%). Democrats (36%) similarly outpace Republicans (11%) and non-affiliated voters (28%) in liking the idea. …”
