Apr 1 - Public opinion shifts on Trayvon Martin case

 Public opinion shifts on Trayvon Martin case - Yahoo! News

As news develops about the investigation into the Feb. 26 Trayvon Martin shooting in Sanford, Fla., nationwide support for the arrest of George Zimmerman, the shooter, is softening. That’s the message from a pair of polls — one conducted March 25-26 and the other March 27-28.
The earlier poll, from CNN, found that 73 percent of Americans were in favor of police arresting Zimmerman, the self-appointed neighborhood watch leader who k!lled Martin after what he has said was an altercation initiated by the unarmed teen.
But just two days later, a national poll from Wilson Perkins Allen (WPA) Opinion Research determined that just 48 percent of Americans said police should arrest Zimmerman — a decrease of 25 percent.
The two polls shared the same distribution of political partisans, each sampling 30 percent Democrats and 25 percent Republicans. The remaining 45 percent either identified themselves as independents or declined to answer the question.
In the WPA poll, 39 percent said they believe Trayvon Martin was “minding his own business” when he was attacked. Just 18 percent said they thought “Zimmerman was attacked” by the teen.
And in a separate question, 74 percent of those polled said they believe racial profiling “is a problem in America today.”
Yet less than half, during the Tuesday-Wednesday polling, said Zimmerman should be arrested.
The margins of error for the CNN and WPA polls were 3.0 and 3.4 percentage points, respectively.

Odd. The majority said racial profiling is a huge problem in the States, and more people believe that Martin was minding his business as opposed to Zimmerman being attacked, yet those who believe that Zimmerman should be jailed dropped by +25%? Interesting.

Hey, I found another one.
yeup... I'm racist...

All because I'm white and didn't automatically believe Zimmerman coudlnt have acted in self defense...



Whereas you have shown your hatred for white people over and over just because of skin color.

But we'll just ignore these facts

No, you're a racist because even with evidence of Zimmerman's guilt, you've decided to play race agitator on this board. People like you throw stones, and hide your hands like a bi*ch. How have I shown my hatred for whites? I said most of them are racists and I prove it time and time again. I wonder if your Black 'friend' knows he's friend with a racist son of a bi*ch such as yourself.
And I said Zimmerman should be arrested... after all the info came out about the case...

You all just kept calling me racist because I said it could be self defense... and I would show how I felt it was.

So that's what it takes to be a racist now?

And race agitator... how? Because I was simply saying Zimmerman could have been acting in self defense? That's being a race agitator?

bi*ch a.ss still calling racism I see?

Either way we do not know what it was. It could have been, it could of not been. For starters what happened technically is none of my business, and lastly the matter in general zimmerman wrong, martin wrong, w/e doesn't have anything to do with me.

I got enough to deal with in my own life. I ain't getting pressed over the issue. It is what it is.

WPA poll? White people of America? I never heard of this sh*t, either way the fact that 50% of people polled by WPA could not support the arrest of George Zimmerman shows how widely accepted racial profiling is. Some people live vicariously through Zimmerman because it justifies their own history of racial profiling. 9 times outta 10 if a dude supports Zimmerman, he's probably the same guy who locks his car door around black men and crosses the street from black men.
