Most Americans in major cities are more worried about crime than defunding the police – as poll shows 90% of Detroit residents want MORE cops

Most Americans in major cities are more worried about crime than defunding the police – as a new poll shows about 90 percent of Detroit residents actually want more cops.

The poll from USA TODAY and the Detroit Free Press conducted with Suffolk University found that Detroit residents overwhelmingly agree that they would feel safer with more cops on the street.

Detroit was not alone, as a poll from WNBC, Telemundo 47 and Politico conducted with Marist last month shows that 70 percent of black Democrats want more cops patrolling the Big Apple.

In that poll, 21 percent of likely Democratic voters even want the return of the plainclothes anti-crime police in some neighborhoods.
