A new poll found that Americans have the lowest opinion of the Black Lives Matter movement since the death of George Floyd, one of the flash points of the BLM agenda.
The poll from the Pew Research Center found that a majority of Americans still support BLM, but that percentage has dropped to its lowest point of 51% in the last three years.
Support for BLM was at its highest in the same poll in June 2020 when two-thirds of Americans said they supported the movement and only 31% said they opposed it.
46% of Americans opposed the movement in the latest poll, the highest percentage of opposition in the last three years.
Critics of the Black Lives Matter movement have also hammered its supporters with a series of controversies and damaging revelations involving the leaders of the group.
In May 2021, activist Patrisse Cullors resigned from the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation after concerns about her spending millions of dollars on high-end properties in California. Cullors, a self-identified Marxist, responded to criticism by blaming "right-wing attacks" trying to taint her character.
In April 2022, it was revealed that the Black Lives Matter organization had allegedly used funds donated to the cause in order to purchase a $6 million home in southern California with cash. When asked to explain the purchase, a leader claimed that the home was going to house a project called the "Black Joy Creators Fellowship."
In May, financial statements from the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation showed that the group was spending lavishly on consultants and other organizations headed by relatives of the leaders even as their donations dwindled.
A separate poll from Harvard's Center for American Political Studies found in 2021 that Americans were far more supportive of the police than they were of the Black Lives Matter movement.
