Don’t Think That Black Voters Are All On Board With Mitch Landrieu’s Confederate Monument Removal

Out late last Friday night came a poll that showed that hardly anyone in the state or city of New Orleans supports Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s proposal to remove four Confederate-related monuments all in the name of ‘political correctness.’

The poll conducted by WWL-TV and The Advocate was strangely released on a Friday evening (Maybe so no one would pay attention to it?) and showed that only 18 percent of the 800 registered voters polled supported Landrieu’s plan to remove the monuments.

On the other hand, 68 percent opposed the monuments being removed by New Orleans city officials. Only 9 percent were undecided on the issue.

And the misconception by Landrieu’s administration and the media that black New Orleanians and Louisianians overwhelmingly want the monuments removed is proving to be nothing but a false media narrative.

Only 46 percent of black voters said they supported the monuments being removed, while 31 percent said that they opposed the idea by Landrieu.

Democrats, alike, opposed the monuments coming down by 42-35 percent, while Republicans opposed Landrieu’s plan by 90-3 percent.

These results are right in-line with a Hayride poll that showed only 19 percent of voters liked the idea of removing the four Confederate monuments from New Orleans.
