A newly released Rasmussen Report indicates that on average Americans consider black Americans to be more racist than whites and Hispanics.
Ideology seemingly plays a large role in public on this issue. Among conservatives, 49 percent consider blacks to be more racist compared to 27 percent of liberals. Twelve percent of conservatives and 27 percent of liberals say whites are more racist.
The partisan perspective shows a similar trend with 49 percent of Republicans and only 29 percent of Democrats saying blacks are more racist. Thirty-six percent of unaffiliated adults feel this way as well.
Interestingly, the race of the respondent seems to be less important than politics.
