FBI just released data showing murders increased 10% in 2016. Trump was 100% right. Yet another Politifact fail. https://t.co/pXqOcKEenk

Not only right, but the only one with the guts to say so.
Exactly - the leadership on the issue is really the key here, and a big reason for his recent surge. People can see with their own eyes what is going on around them, and due to news media obsession with Trayvon Martin, Ferguson, etc. the world appears more dangerous, regardless of what the stats say.
When Dimocrats cite crime stats, they stop at 2014. They ignore the Ferguson effect where cops are backing off for fear of being fired or ruined for doing their job like Darren Wilson who had to kill St. Michael of Swisher Sweets in self defense. He's now stocking shelves at a retail store. Look at the murders in Chicago this year. There have already been 55 more murders so far than all of last year and there are still three months to go.
