Overwhelming approval of verdict in George Floyd's death is 'rare moment' of agreement between Democrats and Republicans, snap poll finds. The USA TODAY/Ipsos survey, conducted just hours after ex-police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of murder in the death of George Floyd, found 71% of Americans agreed Chauvin was guilty. Further, 62% of those polled said they would accept the verdict and do nothing further like march or protest; 61% of both Democrats and Republicans answered that way. Ref. USAToday.
