There were some stark partisan divides on race in the latest CBS News/YouGov poll, but huge majorities agree that President Donald Trump favors white people. The poll, released Tuesday, asked respondents a variety of questions pegged to the unrest over the killing of George Floyd, and the issues associated with it.
For example, 57 percent of respondents agreed that police treat white people better than black people, but only 29 percent of Republicans expressed that view.
But when asked “As President, do you think Donald Trump favors, works against, or is neutral toward” whites, there was agreement, if not complete unanimity. A whopping 72 percent overall agreed that Trump favors white people, including 86 percent of Democrats, 67 percent of independents, and even 58 percent of Republicans.
