Is the dream of MLK still not yet a reality? A New Emerson College Poll has released the latest results looking at race relations in the United States of America under the leadership of President Donald Trump. Do Americans believe they have improved or gotten worse?
As we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr across America on this MLK Day — the question remains: have race relations in the United States gotten better or worse since the ascendancy of Donald Trump to the Presidency?
As it turns out, many Americans (51%) believe they have worsened while just 15% believe they have improved.
However, some minorities believe they have actually gotten better. Despite numerous calls by the administration and its supporters for a wall to be built across the southern border, Hispanic-Americans by the count of 35-33 believe race relations have actually IMPROVED.
Why is this the case?
Full analysis is provided on the most recent Emerson College Polling Weekly Podcast by Emerson Polling pollster Professor Spencer Kimball.
Very relevant to the issue is also who the Democratic Party will run in 2020, presumably, against President Donald Trump.
Emerson Polling’s latest poll, also discussed on the podcast looks at what is expected to be a massive field which will include former candidate Senator Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Also discussed is another issue of the hour: the legalization of marijuana.
