Optimism about race relations in America nearly doubles since Obama’s last year

Throughout President Trump’s three years in office the mainstream media has devoted a lot of attention to an alleged increase in hate crimes and racist shenanigans across the country.

But just as many of the so-called hate crimes are ultimately debunked as hoaxes, a new poll suggests American’s aren’t buying the fake news narrative about an increasingly racist U.S.A.

“Americans are more optimistic about race relations in this country than they have been in several years,” according to Rasmussen Reports. “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 34% of American Adults rate race relations in America as good or excellent, matching the high that was previously released in 2014.”

For reference, that’s more than twice as optimistic as folks were when Obama, the nation’s first black president, left office.

The 34 percent is “up from 25% a year ago and an all-time low of 18% in 2016, Barack Obama’s final year in the White House,” the pollster reports.

Alex Jones covers Trump’s historic speech given by the first President to attend the March For Life event.

The survey involved 1,000 American adults questioned on Jan. 19 and 20, and results have a 3 percent margin of error.

“Thirty-one percent (31%) still view race relations as poor, consistent with findings in recent years but up from a low of 15% in 2011,” according to the poll, released on Friday.

While the Rasmussen poll is seemingly good news, it comes on the heels of a Washington Post-Ipsos poll of American blacks released last week that shows most are not big fans of the president and few give him credit for improving their lives.

Eight in 10 of black Americans polled said they believe Trump is racist, while 77 said he deserves “only some” or “hardly any” credit for the record low 5.5 percent black unemployment rate.

“I don’t think (Trump) has anything to do with unemployment among African Americans,” Ethel Smith, an elderly nanny near Atlanta, told The Washington Post. “I’ve always been a working poor person. That’s just who I am.”

The Post and Ipsos concluded only 7 percent of black Americans approve of Trump’s job performance. Three-quarters of the 1,088 black adults polled Jan. 2-8 told the pollsters Trump’s policies are “bad for African Americans,” while about the same percentage claim Obama’s actions were good.

“Few black Americans appear open to supporting Trump’s bid for reelection at this point. He receives between 4 and 5 percent support among black registered voters in head-to-head matchups against eight potential Democratic nominees,” the Post reports.

“But the level of Democratic support depends on who is the party’s nominee, peaking at 82 percent for former vice president Joe Biden and falling to 57 percent for former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg.”

  1. Former President Obama used “race” to split the Country. Just like Al Sharpton, who made LOTS of money on “race”.

    President Trump asked for a chance and look what he’s done. Unemployment rate is down for Black Americans, Hispanic Americans. No race involved. Just Americans getting back to work. Jobs that have come back that Obama said NEVER would.

    It’s NOT about race. It’s about an attack on BEING AMERICAN. Don’t let the “race card” that Obama used so well, along with his “pen and phone”, fool you. It’s not a BLack and White issue. It’s a globalist vs American. Black Americans are now in the same catagory as the rest of us because NOW it’s all about ILLEGAL ALIENS and what reparations they need.

    President Trump has made it a priority of “America First”. This is what Democrats, and the Obama Administration feared and are trying to stop. Divide and conquer. Nope President Trump is bringing us together to be able to conquer the Swamp in November. No race card needed, only AMERICANS. Flip the house, keep the Senate where it’s at, and put President Trump back in the White House for 4 more years. THEN CLEAN OUT THE OBAMA LEFTOVERS. Leakers, traitors and criminals are all they are AGAINST America First.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

    Shut up Mayor Pete. If it was up to you and your Democratic ilk, the Military would still be handcuffed and the Iran ‘cornerstone’ would still be out there with his missiles not only killing but taking arms and legs off military men and women.

    Your opinion is nothing and if you were ever Commander-in-Chief YOU would be just like Obama. Appeasing our enemy and allowing our Military men and women to be put in harms way with NO way to fight. Just die, NOT for your Country, but for GLOBALIST favors that people like Mayor Pete personally gain financially. Truly disgusting.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  3. Obama was the worst president american has ever had, Jimmy Carter was number two worst and Clinton three.

    Obama did more to create division and hate then any other president. Obama wanted and wants america to fail. He said America is just another country. He was and is a traitor who give weapons to the Muslim brotherhood to use to kill american soldiers, gave guns to Mexican cartels to kill american border guards, lied to us about his health care plan and then laughed at us for falling for it (like we had a choice – his team voted for it).

    Obama was and is a evil piece of crap, but you stupid moronic Liberals are too stupid to be able to comprehend facts so you think he was ok.

    Compared to Obama Trump is the most amazing person on earth. trump has improved the economy, improved race relations, improved energy polices, improved tax polices and is improving our trade deals with other countries. but your liberals are too stupid to comprehend that too.

    Yet Obama and trump prove all liberal / Democrats are always uneducated, low IQ people.

    So for the past 3 years, President Trump has been put thru the wringer for doing HIS job. But this piece of carbon waste can lie, cheat and steal and nothing has been done. And then get caught on camera laughing at OUR dead military? Only SOME terrorists did something?

    Hey there Mr. Wray, doing anything? Or you just going to let this “Obama sweetheart” off the hook. Like you are going to listen to an Obama operative regarding fixing FISA?

    Yep Democrats have their own set of rules. And our National security is still in “lockstep with Obama”. Absolutely amazing.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  5. WOW! TRUMP will triumph. God knows his heart and the hearts of those who have always sought to bring him down. TRUMP WILL TRIUMPH because he has a great heart and good intention for all. He’s doing his job. TRUMP WILL TRIUMPH because no weapons formed against him shall prosper. Greater is God who is in him than all the evil in this world. God bless America and God bless President Trump.
