THE PUB­LIC WEIGHS ON THE CONFEDERACY

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

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.
