FERGUSON, Missouri (PNN) - August 25, 2014 - A very useful YouGov poll that tracks public sentiment about Ferguson over time shows that despite the 24/7 racial demagoguery from cable news network's like CNN and MSNBC, public opinion is moving in the exact opposite direction of the objectives sought by media.
Between August 14-17 a plurality of only 45% believed Ferguson residents reacted unreasonably following the shooting of Michael Brown. Four days later that number jumped to a clear majority of 56%. Those that consider the resident reaction reasonable only increased from 25% to 27%.
Despite a week of heavy and heavily biased reporting, support for the Ferguson terrorist pig thug cops has also jumped. A plurality of 40% now believe that Ferguson terrorist pig thug cops have been "reasonable" in reaction to the protests. That's up from 32% four days ago. The percentage of those who say the terrorist pig thug cops have been unreasonable has stayed the same at 33%.
In both cases, those who had been undecided during the first poll almost all moved against the media position.
However, media's goal to divide Amerikans among racial lines has succeeded. According to this poll, the percentage of black Amerikans who believe the terrorist pig thug cops have acted unreasonably jumped from 48% to 63%. Meanwhile support for the terrorist pig thug cops among whites rose from 34% to 45%.
