The hysterical left-wing media is attempting to paint the Confederate monument removal issue as a losing one for traditionalists and, particularly, President Trump, who has come out in defense of preserving all of America’s history, including the parts that might not have been so pretty.
But are voters with the intolerant-Left on this one? Do the majority of Americans want to see the removal of any statue or monument that offends some snowflake’s delicate sentimentalities?
According to a new Rasmussen poll of 1,000 likely voters conducted August 17 – 20 and published Monday, the answer appears to be a solid no.

The poll shows 50 percent of likely voters agree with President Trump’s first tweet (published above), with only 37 percent disagreeing and 12 percent undecided.
More (39%) American voters believe the removal of Civil War-era monuments will actually hurt race relations than the 28 percent who believe it will help them. The fact that a higher percentage of blacks (43% to 35%) believe the removal of statues will hurt race relations than help is particularly striking.
While blacks disagreed with Trump’s tweet, the margin was only 45% to 41%. Fifty-two percent (52%) of whites and non-black minority voters agreed with President Trump’s Tweet.
Another poll by Reuters/Ipsos showed even stronger numbers, with 54 percent saying Confederate monuments “should remain in all public spaces.”

Sadly, the 66 percent polled by Rasmussen who believed most Americans don’t know about America’s history were proven right by the fact that a full 37 percent didn’t even know when the Civil War was fought!
