Poll: Majority of Blacks Believe There Would Be Ebola Cure if Outbreak Originated in US or Europe

Nearly six in ten black Americans (59 percent) believe that there would already be a cure for the deadly Ebola virus had it originated in Europe or America. 

A YouGov/Economist poll also found that 62 percent of Americans think “more would have been done” to combat Ebola had it not originated in West Africa. Forty-two percent of Americans also believe there would be a cure had the virus originated in Europe or the U.S. while 23 percent do not think that would be the case.

The poll, which was conducted October 4-6 and has a margin of error of +/- 4.4 percentage points, was taken before Thomas Eric Duncan — the Liberian alien who became the first person diagnosed with Ebola on American soil — died on Wednesday.
