Ten percent (10%) of voters have close friends or relatives who were injured or had their property destroyed in recent riots. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 85% do not and 5% are not sure.
Among voters under 35, 19% know someone who has been hurt by the riots. Among older voters (55+), just 4% say the same.
The survey also found that 45% of voters are worried are violent protests and riots will come to their community.
That total includes 54% of Republicans, 42% of Independent voters, and 39% of Democrats.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from September 24-26, 2020. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 159 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. Certain quotas were applied to the overall sample and lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
