Before Charleston, South Carolinians were overwhelmingly in support of flying the Confederate Flag on its State House grounds. The near-overnight momentum by the elected officials to call for a removal of the flag is quite remarkable -- certainly a history-making moment.
An excerpt from the same article . . . "when broken down by race, three out of four whites – 73 percent – said the flag should continue flying, while 61 percent of blacks said it should come down." (The State, "Exclusive" article published 11/22/14).
Public Policy Polling released a survey of registered voters conducted June 19-20, after the Charleston shooting. Sixty-four percent of registered voters opposed government buildings flying the Confederate flag, while 21 percent supported these displays. Fifteen percent were unsure.
