Poll: Almost Half Of White Southerners Say Whites Are Under Attack

A new poll from Winthrop University finds that 46 percent of white people in 11 Southern states agreed or strongly agreed that whites are under attack in America, despite holding the majority.

Thirty percent of all respondents said that white European heritage should be preserved in the U.S., while 40 percent believe Confederate monuments — to those who fought for the slavery of black people in the Civil War — should remain in place.

Twenty-seven percent want the statues moved to a museum.
