71 percent of respondents agree Chauvin was guilty: Poll

A poll conducted by USA Today-Ipsos has found that 71 percent of respondents agreed with the guilty verdict in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd. Just 12 percent rejected Tuesday’s verdict. The online survey questioned 1,000 US adults in the three hours following the verdict announcement.

"For this survey, a sample of 1,000 adults age 18-65 from the continental U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii was interviewed online in English. The sample includes 262 Republicans, 422 Democrats, and 316 Independents. The sample was randomly drawn from Ipsos’ online panel, partner online panel sources, and “river” sampling and does not rely on a population frame in the traditional sense. Ipsos uses fixed sample targets, unique to each study, in drawing a sample. After a sample has been obtained from the Ipsos panel, Ipsos calibrates respondent characteristics to be representative of the U.S. Population using standard procedures such as raking-ratio adjustments. The source of these population targets is U.S. Census 2018 American Community Survey data. The sample drawn for this study reflects fixed sample targets on demographics. Posthoc weights were made to the population characteristics on gender, age, race/ethnicity, region, and education."
