Words on Statue of Liberty will not be erased

And that is because only 32% of Americans might want them erased. Here’s a significant digit from FiveThirtyEight.

32 percent
Percentage of Americans who think it’s very important to be a Christian in order to be “truly American.” Coincidentally, that’s also probably the percentage of Americans who never realized there were words written on the base of the Statue of Liberty. [FiveThirtyEight]

BTW, here are the words.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Somebody should tweet these words to Trump, Pence, and Bannon.
