The march’s unfavorable polling

Though the march is now held in high re­gard, Amer­ic­ans wer­en’t so sure it would be suc­cess­ful. Just 22% held a fa­vor­able view of the march be­fore it began, com­pared with 63% who thought un­fa­vor­ably. Of those, 8% pre­dicted vi­ol­ence, and 17% ex­pec­ted it to ac­com­plish noth­ing.
