A June poll from the Washington Post/Schar School matched up law and order and race relations. Specifically, the poll asked whether voters wanted a president who would enforce the law to restore security or someone who would address the nation’s racial divisions.
Voters said they preferred a candidate who would address the nation’s racial divisions by a 47% to 38% margin.
Perhaps most interesting is the polling that questions voters about Biden and Trump on the issue of law and order. Two polls from June did exactly that.
Biden actually beats Trump by a 49% to 42% margin on who is trusted more on law and order in an average of June Kaiser Family Foundation and Pew Research Center polls.
In other words, Biden beats Trump on the terrain that Trump wishes this election were about. That seven-point difference looks a lot like the overall polling showing Biden with about a 10-point advantage.
