Who do voters trust to keep them safe? Based on new polls, it’s not Donald Trump. In fact, Americans say Trump is the source of the chaos in our country and think that his second term would actually lead to more violence.
Voters don’t trust Trump to handle public safety, preferring Biden by a wide margin.

Half of voters say having Trump as president makes them feel less safe.
Quinnipiac poll: “Fifty percent of likely voters say having Donald Trump as president of the United States makes them feel less safe, while 35 percent say it makes them feel more safe, and 14 percent say it doesn’t have any impact on how they feel.”
