A recent Gallup poll finds respect for law enforcement is the highest across 14 demographic groups, among Republicans (86 percent) and conservatives (85 percent), and among liberals and Democrats as well. (Associated Press)

Looks like rioting had the opposite effect intended.

“Three in four Americans (76 percent) say they have ‘a great deal’ of respect for the police in their area, up 12 percentage points from last year,” reports Justin McCarthy, a Gallup analyst who notes that this finding is significantly higher now than in any measurement taken since the 1990s, and is just one point below the high of 77 percent recorded in 1967.
