Poll: Vast majority say Trump shouldn't encourage anti-lockdown protesters

A majority of Americans (62%) oppose the protesters who have been in state capitals recently calling for lifting of state lockdowns; by nearly three to one Americans oppose, rather than support them.

Slightly more Republicans oppose them than support them, too.

Ideologically, it is only the very conservative (not moderates nor the somewhat conservative) among whom the protesters find majority support – and even there, it’s 6 in 10.

Very few Americans – only 7% – feel President Trump should encourage these protests. Only 13% of Republicans think he should encourage them. In fact, only a quarter of people who support the protesters think the president should encourage the protests.
