Reuters reports that according to its polls a majority of Americans support keeping Confederate statues while slightly more than a quarter favor taking them down:
The Aug. 18-21 poll found that 54 percent of adults said Confederate monuments “should remain in all public spaces” while 27 percent said they “should be removed from all public spaces.” Another 19 percent said they “don’t know.”
Responses to the poll were sharply split along racial and party lines, however, with whites and Republicans largely supportive of preservation. Democrats and minorities were more likely to support removal.
This means that the attacks on Southern monuments (which has escalated to terrorism and rioting in recent days) is being backed by only about one in four people in the USA. It is not a popular agenda.
