  • What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending June 25, 2015

    The shooting massacre at a black church by a young white supremacist in Charleston, South Carolina late last week was a tragic development in the nation’s ongoing conversation on race relations. Following the shooting, several prominent politicians - including Republican Governor Nikki Haley - called for the removal of the Confederate flag from the state’s capitol grounds.

    Sixty percent (60%) of Likely U.S. Voters agree with this view and say the Confederate flag should not be flown at South Carolina’s statehouse. However, voters are more divided as to what the flag means: 43% say it symbolizes Southern heritage, while 39% say it symbolizes hatred. There’s a sharp difference of opinion between white and black voters on this question.
