RUSH: No Matter How You Cut It “Americans Want Statues Left Alone”

RUSH: Okay. Now, after all of that polling data — which, it’s undoubted, folks. The media is portraying public opinion on Charlottesville and the statue area totally erroneously. No matter how you cut it, a majority of Americans want the statues left alone. They do not support this effort of cleansing American history from public. It’s obvious in every group. Even in the Northeast, when the geographic slice is made, you find — even in the Northeast — a majority of Americans want the statues left alone.

It’s only liberal and very liberal Americans, who want them down, and that’s a subset; it’s not a minority of that group. But after all of that news, the same poll says 61% of the American people have “little or no confidence in Trump’s leadership of the nation during an international crisis.”

So what are we to make of this? Those two things kind of are at odds. The one, I think, irrefutable conclusion is that the media is overwhelmingly distorting the public’s reaction to Trump’s handling of what happened in Charlottesville. They are blowing that so out of proportion. The media’s handling of this is in no way reflective of public opinion of it — and that, to me, is big. The 61% who say they have “little or no confidence in Trump’s leadership in an international crisis,” that’s kind of a standalone. It’s a problem, yeah. But the other stuff, I think, is big.
