THE PUBLIC WEIGHS ON THE CONFEDERACY
A new Public Policy Polling survey mostly has bad news for President Trump and Republicans in general — no earthshaking news since the polling firm is known to be Democrat-friendly.
But the survey also had an interesting finding tucked into it, revealing that 42 percent of voters “support public memorials to the Confederacy”; 64 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of Democrats agree, along with 70 percent of voters who supported Mr. Trump in 2016, and 20 percent of those who supported Hillary Clinton.
Another 35 percent oppose the memorials; 14 percent of Republicans, 51 percent of Democrats, 15 percent of Trump voters and 56 percent of Clinton voters agree.
And lastly, 23 percent of the respondents overall were unsure about the matter. There the breakdown was 21 percent of Republicans, 23 percent of Democrats, 15 percent of Trump voters and 25 percent of Clinton voters.
