Poll: Vast Majority of Americans, Including African-Americans, Agree That All Lives Matter

Well, it’s come to this: we need to poll where the sentiments of black lives matter or all lives matter fall within the American electorate. The latter is a non-controversial statement, which also happens to encompass the former since all lives do matter.


Now, we have some activists, like Julius Jones, from the Black Lives Matter movement saying that all lives matter is a “violent statement.” It’s utter nonsense. Luckily, a Rasmussen poll shows that the vast majority of likely American voters, including blacks, agree that all lives matter:

When asked which statement is closest to their own views, 78% of Likely U.S. Voters say all lives matter. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 11% say black lives matter. Nine percent (9%) say neither statement reflects their point of view.

Thirty-one percent (31%) of black voters say black lives matter is closest to their own views, but just nine percent (9%) of whites and 10% of other minority voters agree. Eighty-one percent (81%) of whites and 76% of other minority voters opt instead for all lives matter, and 64% of blacks agree.

Nevertheless, some still find all lives matter to be a highly controversial remark. Just look at what happened to former Democratic Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley when he said this at the progressive Netroots Nation conference in July.  

Spoiler alert: things turned out poorly.
