Rasmussen: ‘Most Voters…Don’t Believe The New President Has Improved Race Relations’

Rasmussen reported, “While support from black voters was crucial to President Joe Biden’s election, most voters – including most black voters – don’t believe the new president has improved race relations or made life better for young black people.”

“Voter opinions of American race relations under Biden’s presidency are better than during former President Trump’s tenure in the White House,” Rasmussen observed.

The polling outlet noted, “Three years ago in June 2018, only 20% of voters said U.S. race relations had gotten better since Trump’s election, while 32% said life had gotten better for young black Americans.”

Rasmussen added, “Nevertheless, voters gave Trump a better rating on race relations than former President Obama; in Obama’s final year in office, 60% of voters said U.S. race relations had gotten worse since his election.”
