Although the civil rights movement has been around for several decades, to this day in the United States has failed to get rid of the division along racial lines.
The results of a survey of Hill-HarrisX indicate that overall segregation considers the problem 61% of respondents, and only 25 believe that it no longer exists. 13 on this issue undecided.
Minorities are much more negative assessment of the situation: the presence of segregation recognized 95% of African Americans and 77 “Latino”. Although among whites the share of supporters of this opinion are much lower, and in this category they are the majority — 53%.
Playing the role of the age factor: on the unresolved racial problems stated by 77% of respondents who are 18 to 34 years, and only 60% of those aged 65.
And if the Democrats of the existence of segregation was declared by 80%, while among Republicans there were less than half.
The issue was on the agenda after the end of June, during the first round of debates between the candidates of the Democratic party, Senator Kamala Harris condemned the former Vice-President Joseph Biden for the fact that in 1970-e years, being a member of the upper house of Congress, he very successfully collaborated with two colleagues who were supporters of segregation.
In particular, he objected to the children distributed on school buses, not based on racial lines. “Then, in the late 70’s, I, a little girl from California, day by day confronted with this phenomenon when I went to class,” said Harris.
As a result of its popularity, according to nationwide opinion polls, has increased significantly, whereas Biden has lost some supporters, especially among Republicans.
According to the Morning Consult Survey, ranking Senator for 3 weeks decreased by 8 points. However, with 38%, it continues to be a leader among the candidates-Democrats.
