Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group concluded on Thursday that the majority of Americans felt safer while former President Donald Trump was in power two years ago.
The survey asked, “Do you feel as safe in America today as you did 2 years ago?”
The majority, 67.9 percent, reported that they do not feel as comfortable in the United States as they did when Trump was president two years ago. In addition, 27,1% of respondents indicated that they do feel as safe, while 5% remained doubtful.
In Biden’s America, 86.8 percent of Republicans and 64.1% of independents feel less secure. A plurality of Democrats, 47.8 percent, reported that they felt as safe as they did two years ago. Nonetheless, 44,9% of Democrats reported feeling less secure.
The poll was conducted with 1,079 participants between September 17-20, 2022, and the margin of error is +/- 2.9%.
The statistics is released as Biden’s America continues to endure a crime wave in American towns.
Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Bill Hagerty (R-TN) addressed a letter to President Joe Biden this week, urging the White House to combat the nation’s crime wave and demanding, among other things, a commitment to law enforcement.
“Rampant crime is not inevitable — tough law enforcement can stop it,” Blackburn and Hagerty wrote. “But that requires a commitment to law enforcement.”

In a separate case last week, 19-year-old Ezekiel Kelly was arrested in Memphis after he allegedly carried out seven shootings that left four Americans dead. Kelly is said to have live-streamed the shootings on social media.
