New Poll: Views on Diversity Vary Across USA

The University of Phoenix and the National Journal released the results of a nationwide survey on diversity during an event Thursday at the Newseum in Washington.

The poll asked whites and minorities about pillars of the American experience, including demographic change, race relations and economic opportunity. 
Among the findings: 


College-educated African-Americans and Hispanics are no more optimistic about race relations than those without degrees.

Whites, Hispanics, and African-Americans largely cite the same reasons for the income gaps among them - with one big exception.

The event also featured a keynote interview with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and expert panel discussions. It was the first in a series of forums scheduled this year tied to the National Journal’s new Next American initiative, which is presented by the Apollo Group, University of Phoenix’s parent company.
