A new poll has found that 57% of Americans now believe that race relations in the United States are bad
A NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that Americans are more pessimistic about race relations than they have been in 20 years. While a quarter of polled Americans called race relations "good", 57% called them "bad" and 23% called them "very bad". That's a major shift from July 2013, when the reverse was true and 52% believed race relations to be good. Broken down by race, 40% of whites responded "good" to the poll while 35% of blacks responded that way. Around half of Latinos responded "good" versus 43% who said "bad".
