Just 51 percent of Chicago residents say the relationship between police and residents in their city is good or very good. That’s far and away the worst rating among the 20 largest U.S. cities.

At the other end of the spectrum, there are three urban areas where more than 80 percent of residents rate their police-community relations in such positive terms: Dallas-Fort Worth (86 percent), Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne (82 percent), and Boston (81 percent).

Eleven cities have positive ratings in the 70s while five are in the 60s. Other than Chicago, no other city has a rating below 65 percent.

The YouGov survey relied upon small sample sizes in each market, so the specific rankings could easily shift a bit. For example, it is not clear that Boston at 81 percent in this survey is better than Phoenix at 79 percent. However, even allowing for the margin of error, no city scores worse than Chicago.
