According to a Hill-HarrisX poll, three-quarters of Republicans think white Americans face discrimination in the U.S. Though majority of the respondents from both parties assume that Hispanic and black Americans get the most hate. Democratic and Republican voters had differing opinions when it comes to questioning the systematic bias that white Americans face. The poll conducted the survey towards statistically calculated audiences of 1,003 U.S registered voters.
Out of 80% of registered voters who believe in the strong discrimination towards African-Americans, 95% of those are Democratic, 78% are Republicans, and 82% are independent voters. 81% of total respondents believed on societal bias towards Hispanic-Americans. 92% of those were Democratic, while 72% were votes from Republicans, and 76% were from independents. The results diverge when asked if people of European descent receive societal bias in the country.
62% of Democratic respondents think that white Americans face little to no discrimination. 75% of Republicans claim that white Americans are also subject to discrimination, while only 38% of Democrats and 55% of independents claim that this is true. The research director of the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group, Robert Griffin told in an interview with the Hill that a large amount of people in the U.S claim that no group is exempted of any form of discrimination. In a 2017 NPR poll, 55 percent of white people said that US society discriminates against them.
Tim Hershman, 68, and a citizen from Akron, Ohio said that black people always get the first dibs on a job because the government gives help if they do. This sentiment was used during the 2016 presidential campaign rallies of President Donald Trump.
