Is there a massive change in whether both blacks and whites believe Republicans or Democrats have done the most for blacks?

May 28, 2024 | Survey

Rasmussen Reports surveyed likely voters in 2020 and 2024 to determine whether they thought Republicans or Democrats had done the most for blacks. In May 2020, only 18% of blacks thought that Republicans had done the most, but that increased to 32% in May 2024. Large changes had also occurred among Republicans, whites, and all likely voters.

There have also been large changes in people’s views on whether they think racial issues are discussed too much or too little. While 60% of blacks thought there was too little discussion in 2020, that had fallen to 46% in 2024. But there have similar changes in groups across the board. Likely, voters as a whole went from being tied on the issue to people believing that politicians discuss racial issues too much by a two-to-one ratio.

The survey shows that voters overwhelmingly think that politicians raise racial issues to get elected, not because they really want to address the real problems. Generally, there has been very little change in people’s opinions on this issue. While Republicans have become more likely to believe politicians do this to get elected, Democrats have become less likely to believe that.
