[Ed. – Does the 28% include themselves?]
Positive views of race relations in this country have taken a beating in recent days, although most continue to reject the idea that racism is rampant in America.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 23% of Americans Adults give good or excellent marks to race relations in America today. That’s down from a high of 34% in January. Thirty-nine percent (39%) now consider race relations poor, up from 31% five months ago. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Only 25% believe race relations are getting better, while 43% say they’re getting worse. This compares to 30% and 41% at the start of the year. But in June 2017, an all-time low of 18% said race relations were getting better, while 52% felt they were getting worse.
