National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters

Conducted July 16 & 19, 2015

By Rasmussen Reports


1* As part of the debate over the Confederate flag, some have suggested that the United States change its flag because that flag has flown over a country that allowed slavery and other forms of discrimination. Do you favor or oppose changing the American flag?


2* Some have suggested getting rid of monuments such as the Jefferson Memorial and the carving on Stone Mountain in Georgia because they honor men who practiced or defended slavery. Should the United States erase symbols of its past history that are out of line with current sentiments?


3* The radical Islamic group ISIS is destroying non-Islamic historical sites and artifacts in areas that it controls. Is this the same or different from proposals now being made in this country to erase certain symbols of the past?
