    A new poll by the very liberal Washington Post and ABC News shows that a majority of Americans oppose removal of Confederate monuments. The poll showed that 52% opposed removal while 43% supported it. Among Republicans, 80% were opposed to removal and among Independents, 57% opposed removal. Even a majority of Hispanics oppose removal. Only among Democrats and blacks did majorities support removal.

    Roy Cooper's actions on this issue were shameful and out of touch with teal people in NC, as he usually is. So are the Pitt County Commissioners.

    While the poll showed a majority say they support Black Lives Matter, the poll question, like Big Media coverage, has failed to explain its radical objectives like ending capitalism or that all three of its co-founders are avowed Marxists.
