Poll: Confederate Monuments Remain More Popular Than Republicans

Is the Lost Cause a hopeless cause?

Morning Consult:

“As was the case in the June 2020 poll, the latest survey found Republicans were more united on the issue than Democrats: While 54 percent of Democrats say the statues should be taken down, 83 percent of GOP voters voiced the opposite opinion. What’s more, Republicans were even more likely to hold that view than they were nearly four years ago, when 75 percent said they should remain standing.

Similarly, Republicans are increasingly likely to believe that the Confederate flag is more of a symbol of Southern pride than a harbinger of racism: 77 percent of GOP voters said they see it more as the former in the new poll, up from 70 percent who said the same last year and in a 2015 poll.

Nearly half of all voters (47 percent) said they saw the flag as a symbol of Southern pride rather than one of racism (36 percent). …”

This is an interesting result.

Confederate monuments are more popular than the Republican Party. In spite of what you may have heard about America’s racial reckoning, public opinion hasn’t shifted on the issue and only 30% of voters want to erase Confederate symbols and monuments from the public square. Republican voters have become even more supportive of Confederate monuments.
