Gallup: Confidence in police drops below 50% among young, Hispanics, and Democrats, below 40% among liberals

Reading that headline, you might assume that confidence in cops is down among the general population too. Not so. It’s up five points since 2015. What Gallup’s seeing isn’t erosion in trust for the P.D. among Americans overall but starker polarization among different demographics — red/blue, white/black, young/old. In this as in so much else, the country’s pulling further apart.
