POLL: Most Millennials just fine with Confederate monuments

A new poll suggests that those college students who are demanding the removal of Confederate monuments are actually in the minority among their peers.

University campuses have figured prominently in the recent controversies surrounding statues, markers, and other monuments honoring Confederate soldiers and political leaders.

Administrators at Johns Hopkins University and the Maryland Institute College of Art, for instance, have praised the removal of Confederate statues in Baltimore, while monuments located on or near the campuses of the University of Tennessee, the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, and Duke University have become the targets of anonymous vandals.
