Poll: 96% Expect More Racially-Charged Unrest Nationwide

A whopping 96 percent of Americans say that they expect more racially-charged unrest around the country this summer, similar to the past week's violence in Baltimore. And more than half — 54 percent — believe a similar disturbance is likely in the metropolitan area closest to where they live.
In a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 68 percent of adults said they believe it is "very likely" that there will be more protests and clashes around the country like those after the death of Freddie Gray, a black man who suffered a fatal spinal injury while in police custody. Another 28 percent said that they believe such unrest is "somewhat likely."
The expectation of more events nationwide like those in Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, was similar among respondents regardless of race.
But white respondents were slightly more likely than African-Americans to say that they expect racially-charged disturbances in the metropolitan area closest to them.
