Poll finds race relations at lowest point in 25 years; let’s see how Chuck Todd reports sad results

A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll has discovered something that nearly every American instinctually already knows: during the era of Barack Obama race relations are worse than ever. The poll reveals that race relations are at the lowest point in 25 years.

During a recent broadcast of NBC’s Meet The Press, host Chuck Todd revealed the poll to his audience with 74 percent saying race relations in America today are dismal, the Free Beacon reports.

Todd, who started his professional life as a Democrat operative, began his report citing another time when race relations were bad, the month in 1995 when O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murdering his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. “Race relations are the lowest point in the history of our poll, in more than 25 years. The previous low was in October of ’95,” Todd said. “Back then, 61 percent said race relations were bad, while 34 percent thought race relations were good.”

“A whopping 74 percent of all Americans say race relations are bad, and only 24 percent say they are good,” Todd added.

The NBC host also noted another poll showing African-Americans are feeling very negative about the country.

“In January, African-Americans were a net positive on this question. 18 points ahead on the positive side, saying the country was headed in the right direction,” Todd said. “Now, African-Americans are in a negative standpoint, minus 22 points, saying the country is headed down the wrong track. A 40-point swing in just six months. It’s obvious all of this has had an impact.”

“It’s obvious that all of this has had an impact,” Todd said sonorously.
