Support by Americans for the Black Lives Matter movement has collapsed to lows not seen since it first started, according to a new poll.
A new Pew Poll finds that only 51 percent of Americans now support BLM, a drop of six points since last year.

Two-thirds of U.S. adults said they supported the movement following Floyd’s death in 2020, according to a Pew analysis of the 5,073-person survey.
Opinions on the movement vary by race, age and political leaning.
Black adults are the most likely to back the movement. According to the survey, 81 percent of Black adults in the U.S. support the Black Lives Matter movement, while 63 percent of Asian adults, 61 percent of Hispanic adults and 42 percent of white adults support it.
Naturally, less learned young people support it more while white adults were more likely to find the movement “divisive” or “dangerous.”
About 64 percent between the ages of 18 to 29 support the movement while just 52 percent of 30 to 49-year-olds support it. The number goes down to 46 percent among 50 to 64-year-olds and down to its lowest of 41 percent for seniors 65 and older.
This fall in support comes on the tail of years of dangerous, destructive riots, BLM militancy, and its ultimate fraud on its finances.
