A new poll from PBS has found the majority of Americans of all races believe statues honoring the leaders of the confederacy should remain and only a small minority believes they should be taken down.
PBS News reports:
The poll found that 62 percent of Americans believe Confederate statues should remain in place as historical symbols.
Republicans were twice as likely as Democrats to say they supported keeping statues that honor Confederate leaders. Two-thirds of whites and Latinos said these statues should not be removed. African-American respondents were split, with 44 percent saying the statues should remain in place, and another 40 percent saying they need to be removed because some people find them offensive.
Here’s the actual numbers:
This poll goes completely counter to the hate-driven media’s narrative these statues are symbols of hatred and oppression.
