Rasmussen poll: Voter majority support ousting soft-on-criminal prosecutors

Soft-on-crime prosecutors aren’t very popular these days, a new poll says.

Public sentiment is heating against prosecutors perceived as being soft on criminals, a new Rasmussen survey revealed Wednesday.

According to Rasmussen Reports, “A new national telephone and online survey by the National Police Association and Rasmussen Reports finds that 58% of Likely U.S. voters believe a law permitting an appointed state oversight committee with the ability to remove state attorneys from office if they won’t prosecute violent crimes would improve safety.”

The survey found only 21 percent of respondents disagreeing, and another 20 percent aren’t sure.

The survey of 982 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on Feb. 7 by the National Police Association and Rasmussen Reports with a margin of sampling error at +/- 3 percentage points and a 95% level of confidence, the polling firm said.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

The problem is becoming acute in some locations mentioned in the Rasmussen report.

“The survey asked voters about the specific policies of big-city district attorneys – Alvin Bragg in New York, Chesa Boudin in San Francisco, Kim Foxx in Chicago, George Gascon in Los Angeles and Kim Gardner in St. Louis – and found widespread opposition,” Rasmussen said.

According to Rasmussen, 72 percent “think Boudin’s policy in San Francisco of refusing to prosecute felons under California’s Three Strikes law, makes it more likely felons will continue committing crimes in the city.” Fifty-eight percent think Bragg’s policy in Manhattan of not prosecuting people for resisting arrest “makes it more likely people will resist arrest,” Rasmussen added. A whopping 67 percent “think that refusing to prosecute for resisting arrest will make arrests more dangerous for arresting officers.”

Down in Los Angeles County, Gascon’s approach to “fighting” crime has him in trouble with 69 percent of survey respondents who think the county will be less safe because he won’t prosecute minors in adult court, even if they commit murder, Rasmussen explained.
