Only 10% of Americans think race relations have improved since the election of Barack Obama, according to a new Rasmussen poll. 43% think race relations have deteriorated and 44% say there’s been no change. Only 30% of those polled think race relations are good or excellent.
Yet in January 2009, just before Obama was inaugurated, 48% of Americans thought race relations would improve, including 75% of blacks. But now, 87% of black Americans say the U.S. justice system is unfair to blacks. 80% of black Americans think George Zimmerman was guilty in Trayvon Martin’s shooting death.
