NY Post poll shows progressives’ push to defund NYPD not in line with Dem voters


Progressive proponents of defunding the NYPD are out of touch with the city’s Democratic electorate — with worries about crime and safety the greatest among the party’s lower-income and minority voters, a poll commissioned by The Post has found.

A Brooklyn cop said of the results, “It doesn’t surprise me that the politicians don’t know what the people of the city really want.”
