July 10, 2020: Seventy-four percent (74%) of voters nationwide believe that "In daily life, most Americans generally get along regardless of race. They find ways to work together and create a better community." Twenty-one percent (21%) disagree while 5% are not sure.
The totals include 30% who strongly agree and just 6% who strongly disagree.
By a 50% to 47% margin, very liberal voters disagree with the statement. In every other measured demographic group, more people agree than disagree.
Still, there are significant differences among political and demographic lines. Eighty-two percent (82%) of senior citizens agree that most people get along regardless of race. Just 55% of voters under 25 share that view.
Ninety percent (90%) of Republicans believe people generally get along in daily life. Seventy-one percent (71%) of independent voters and 63% of Democrats agree.
